I still think this is not a good patch nor mechanism to
show what is generally used as exploders rather than

Effectively only individuals can submit patches and so
can be M: Maintainers.

I believe these entries should really use R: Reviewer
entries and keep the descriptive naming content.

The descriptive naming does add value and this patch
loses that value.
