There are good reasons why the style is like it is. If I would start
adding "wireless:" tags to the title it would clutter 'git log
--oneline' and gitk output, which I use all the time. And I'm not
interested making my work harder, there would need to be really strong
reasons why I would even recondiser changing it.

BTW, this is also documented in our wiki:
