That would work. It could say that the PR consists of multiple commits
and the commit message needs to be summarised when merging, and
suggest that if the submitter is willing, they could squash and
summarise the message themselves. I don't want to give the impression
we're insisting the submitter squash, rather we're pointing out
there's an additional step needed and the submitter can help by doing
that step if they wish.

Yeah, that would probably be useful for regular committers.
