Yeah, agreed on that too.

Would it add too much complexity to have extra fields on the release 
page for that?  So instead of one box to enter all the custom text, you 
have a "release info" box, and a "changelog/release notes" box.

Yes!  I know at least a few times I've seen a release announcement for 
something and have thought "what does that app/plugin actually do?" but 
was too lazy to go find its webpage to figure it out.
