The stable guide[1] was recently changed[2] to allow just this thing,
essentially at the discretion of the stable teams, both stable-maint-core and
project specific.

So I'd hazard a guess that if the patch you point out were to follow the
documented procedure (clean backport with matching Change-ID done with cherry-pick
-x)[3] It'd come down to ironic to decide if it was a good candidate.

[4] Yes this should be part of the project-team-guide, /me fixes that.

Yours Tony.
