You may want to ask upstream automake to implement this, if you consider
this useful. I consider this proposal to be utterly silly.

Ask your system admin to do, if you think it's useful.
None of the 10000's of auto*tools based packages on this planet does so
and no distribution of any OS on this planet does so.
You next step will be requesting to install ChangeLogs, I suppose?
That's what almost all distributions on this planet do - As part of
their packaging process.
