Logically, I agree but then the only time I used the Fixes tag is when
I was tagging patches for stable and I can imagine people grepping for
the tag to backport. Also, given that the offending commit is already
referenced in the description, the tag doesn't make much difference to
human beings. I don't think it's a big deal either way but am more
inclined to follow Li's suggestion here given that he is maintaining
stable trees.

Thanks.
