Sure. But the ChangeLog and some Tramp files contain already references
to (Bug#nnn). I do not intend to mix different formats, and I do not
intend to change such references to a new format.

That's possible of course, but I don't see why I shall. I've spoken
about my preferred format of bug references (the existing one); and I
haven't seen a convincing argument why it must be changed.

Bug references are not used only in Emacs ChangeLog files. There might
be other Lisp packages using them, and there might be even other software
but Emacs which uses them. See the list of packages hosted on
debbugs.gnu.org <http://debbugs.gnu.org/Packages.html>. Some of the
maintainers might use Emacs as editor.

Best regards, Michael.
