Sign your name in pkg-descr is useless or useful?

I just now noticed that in the Porter handbook said:
It is recommended that you sign your name at the end of this file, as in:

This is a port of oneko, in which a cat chases a poor mouse all over
the screen.

I think, it's useless because most of us don't do it. Also, we already 
have the Whom: and MAINTAINER in the Makefile. It seems to me that sign 
our name in it is making no sense for pkg-descr as in description file.
