I see no particular reason to change - it's just one of those things.

Two third of commits don't use [subsystem] and 90% don't use trailing
period.  Reasons to change would be a) consistency and b) the time it takes
to occasionally fix up patches which use [subsystem] as I earlier
described.

I don't think these are terribly important, really.
