I think it already is, as we surely don't discourage that.

It's not that easy in Emacs, see gitmerge.el and the references to it

It's more complicated than that, unfortunately.  Even experienced
people made mistakes with that, so I guess it's not as easy as in
other projects.  Specific suggestions for how to make the process
better will be welcome, I'm sure, but please study the existing
documentation and code first.

What we thought needed to be documented is in CONTRIBUTE already.
