Yes it is. It serves several purposes:

1) We love contributions. The more thanks we give to the contributor, the better. It also
helps other community members notice the contribution
2) It explicitly notes that this code is not created by the committer, but the contributor.
The svn commit message ties this information into our svn repository. Otherwise, we are dependent
upon the information in the Jira...
