We've had this conversation before and I proposed
to you a simple solution.
and I still more or less agree with Florian

I'm not doing it wrong.  You have another demand
others don't.  I simply don't find it necessary to
cater to you.

If you want it to be agreed that there is a specific
form for subject headers that varies by maintainer tree,
change SubmittingPatches Paragraph 11.

I suggest you use a git pre-commit hook to your
tree and use sed/perl to add a specific prefix
if it doesn't exist.
