The canonical patch message body contains the following:

- A "from" line specifying the patch author.

A patch submitter should not need to know the patch receiver's
personal preferences and vary patches based on those.

It's not a personal preference. It's all based on git-applymbox, pretty much.

The SubmittingPatches doc should be updated to clarify that a From line is not needed in the email body, if it is the same as the From line in the RFC822 header.
