Sorry, the argument is that the subsystem profiles there were created
for the very purpose of documenting subsystem-specific patch policies
like those found in your document. The hope is that, someday, people
will be able to go to one place to learn what special hoops any given
subsystem will make them jump through.

This isn't something I'm going to dig in my heels on, though. But at a
minimum, could you add an entry to
Documentation/maintainer/maintainer-entry-profile.rst ?
