Ah, a risk of putting my head above the parapet, I think that was mine

At the time I wrote it it was a short note to myself for the commit
within a branch; I was imagining that the whole series of commits would
be squashed into one at the time it appeared as a merge in blead, and
so the text of the message wouldn't matter except in the short-term to
me. I now see that isn't the case.

I wonder if it would help to clarify what happens to messages made at
various points of branch/merge/etc... as that would probably help folks
work out what is appropriate for them.
