git-core might balk, but might surprise you and accept it. :-)

Linux kernel team balked and doesn't like the Change-Id field in their
messages, as it has no "long lasting value and no relationship to a
public database". I proposed using the Message-Id from the LKML email
that kicked off a discussion on a patch, but they also were not in
favor of this idea as it polluted the history visible in git log.

Might be worth raising on git mailing list. I keep getting annoyed in
Gerrit when I downloaded a new plugin repository and then need to add
the hook.
