Ah, that's my mistake. I have always been under the impression that "Versions" meant "versions affected", not "versions that this needs to be fixed for". I usually just selected the ones where I had verified that it's a problem.

I do not think this should be backported to 3.6. From the discussion in the datetime-SIG mailing list, we have realized that this change will *also* break anyone whose default constructor does not support the same signature as the base datetime. I think this is probably not a major problem (many other alternate constructors assume that the constructor accepts arguments as datetime does), but it's not something that I think we should be changing in a patch version.
