It's sometimes a notable divergence from upstream to fix this kind of
thing, so I can understand why maintainers don't fix it if it's not
actually causing problems.

If you identify a case where it causes or is likely to cause problems,
surely that's a regular bug report that maintainers should then deal with
according to its severity.
