Correct, 2.7 is not in security fix only mode (yet), but new features (anything that changes an API) or bug fixes that we wouldn't put in a maintenance release (things that would break existing programs) are not allowed.  A special exception has been made for 2.7 for performance enhancements; we wouldn't normally do those in a maintenance release unless they were significant.

But as Steve says, it depends on a core developer being interested in applying the fix/backport.  Which we may have, we'll wait and see :)
