The idea is to avoid adding a D: entry to each subsystem section.

Maybe not. I did that for clarity with the space after colon.
My recollection is some systems used "[subsystem]" separators
and other use / without space and not colons, but I'm for
whatever approriate changes that support standarization

I think most developer/maintainers don't care one way or
another about patch commit prefixes, but those that do care
seem to care a lot.
