Add "implements" as a closing keyword

Hello, all. Some time ago, GitLab added the “implements” closing keyword to their platform (see #14612). GitHub currently only offers the “closes”, “fixes”, and “resolves” closing keywords, unlike GitLab, which supports all four. I was wondering if there were any plans for GitHub to add “implements” to their list of closing keywords?

Being able to use “implements” as a closing keyword would help facilitate more semantically meaningful pull requests and better enable developers to understand the intent of any given pull request simply at a glance.
