Ok - first, we certainly allow it - I'd sooner accept a contribution 
from someone than push them away with a rule like this.

But that said, for the JIRAs that I was working with, people were 
actively engaged, so why should we put it on the committer to do it, or 
make it a "two phase" commit to complete the JIRA?   I'd  suggest simply 
that the committer should ask if they want, like I did.  It worked out.

I don't want to create the new JIRA, as I'd rather the people that are 
offering and engaging on the patch to do it so we know who to talk to,
