Can you please clarify what exactly that would mess up?
Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst even mentions the tags
to put in "[PATCH <tag>]"?

Without this:
- It's hard to visually match your untagged cover letter with the
actual patches,
- Your individual patches lack the version info, so people cannot see which
version review comments in an email reply apply to.
