Although theoretically you can use the same commands (but I repeat, I remember some problems in the past with this - I will try to dig on the history to find any -), what will happen for sure is that people forget to do/don't know such initial steps and appear that the migration pull request is correct, while it doesn't contain the missing commits, charging on the reviews to check this, so that's the real issue, together with other strong arguments like the IDE search, cleaning, etc.
And I also agree having some repositories with one approach and another with the other approach is a mess. You have done the installable=False approach in the past for your specific repositories (mis-builder, storage, product-pim and queue mostly), because you do the migration yourself, not involving other contributors, but the rest of the repositories can't apply this method.
