I believe that is the best way to do it. Otherwise we would need to push  
multiple patches for the same change: one into *aas, and another one into  
neutron tree just for release notes. It defeats the whole usefulness of  
being able to enforce release notes requirements as part of the patches  
making the actual changes. We all know ‘I will follow up’ often means ‘I  
won’t do it, ever’.
