        I guess the above means there’s no valid reason to stick to this
        format any longer?

        I believe these two are essentially the same format – subject to
        the usual capitalization rules.  Consider, e. g.:

        * lisp/foo.el (foo-bar): Do not call qux.  (Bug#54321)
        * lisp/baz.el (baz-mode): Let-bind foo-1 to nil (bug#53210) and
        call bar.

        FWIW, I’d prefer to just stick with the (bug#) markers for
        commit messages, and let them propagate as is to the ChangeLog
        when one’s generated.
