After reading all the comments, my opinion is

A) Changelog format should not be a MUST, we could allow for some flexibility 
in the packager.

B) There could be a generic 'The changelog SHOULD have the version-release 
noted in it somewhere' rule, where that version-release winds up is up to the 
packager, and its a should rather than a Must.  Reviews shouldn't be blocked 
because of this, its just a suggested practice.
