And I would have MFC'ed the bug fix the moment RELENG_6 was unfrozen.
I'm not arguing that committing the fix to all the active RELENG_*
branchs isn't a good idea.  Nor have I said I wouldn't do it.  The issue
is you're essentially requiring me to MFC thru a code freeze (the process
can be too heavy weight) before I could work on HEAD - a requirement that
hasn't existed before and isn't written down anywhere.
