Indeed. IMO it would be acceptable for ticket creation, but:

Got it! So I did two things:

- I've requested that this info is moved to the top of the notes:

This will mitigate the problem you're describing if we import
data without admin rights on GitLab.

- I've updated the hosting comparison to make it clearer that
avoiding this problem entirely would be a point in favour of
choosing a GitLab instance on which we have admin credentials.
