I don't see why; if we're going to keep the current format, pull requests should use the format too.

I have the sense that pull requests work better in projects with a large number of occasional committers and a small number of full-time developers who triage and review. Emacs development doesn't work that way: among other things, there are no full-time developers, and we don't have enough reviewer time. So it may not be a good fit for the pull-request model. (It might make sense to change Emacs's development model but that's a larger topic....)
