I feel TrivialFix is consistently used by people just to avoid going
to lanuchpad and filing a bug. It should only be used only if the "Fix
is Trivial"
This has been well documented in the contributing doc [1] and this
should be referred to people when they do not have the bug/bp in the
commit message.

If the commits are important then there is no harm in creating a
tracking bug for it.
It would take 1/30(I am just making highest time for a build/deploy
gate) amount of time you need to verify the (important)fix on gate.
