Seems to me that what you say is largely true, but either everyone does
it, or no-one should. Since the tradition in AG has been to _not_ flag
every change in the code but to flag them in CHANGES instead (with
attribution) it doesn't seem right or sensible to suddenly start doing
it differently now.

Also, attribution in CHANGES gets you the best of both worlds - rewards
without territorial marking...
