Yes, that's the most obvious place to put information about ChangeLogs.
Other ChangeLogs can be renamed as you suggested.

Yes, that's my assumption, too, which is why I was looking for an Emacs
mode to simplify the task.

As far as releases are concerned, we can surely use one of these scripts
to generate a top-level ChangeLog.  It doesn't seem too complicated and
may be handy for users who don't want to browse the Git repository.
