I would say yes. It matches existing convention from what I can tell, plus 
it's simply a good idea as it makes things like git log --oneline a bit more 
useful to try to grep through.

At the same time it's not necessarily a big deal if it's left out, as you can 
always manually pass a path to git log to have it return only log entries for 
the path you're interested in.
