Use of [XY] initials in debian/changelog

Some time ago we decided to tag the items in debian/changelog with the [XY]
initials of the person responsible for each item. Unfortunately we have not
followed this rule in a systematic way (for instance, I inadvertently used
another convention in jed-extra 2.4.2-1).
I will try to follow the rule more carefully in the future. I am wondering
whether we can change it slightly to require that the [XY] tag goes in the
beginning of the item, in order to improve the legibility of the file. Look
at the lintian changelog , for instance.
