I'd keep NEWS as NEWS -- as it is more end-user friendly. Those who adds
content to the file cal look  previous entries for formatting (like they've
been doing so far -- latest 0.13 entries are pretty consistent with the
*current* content.

We could add an introductory section to the beginning of NEWS file which
informs about formatting structures -- this section would exist only
in master branch of notmuch repository; i.e. end users get just notmuch
NEWS, not some metainfo how the content is (to be) formatted.
