I understand your unsureness for the point release inclusion.  When you
request it to the release team, you can quote my support based on the
following rationale.

* This dvipdmf-x code currently in jessie broke the released note as we
* Considering extremely complex nature of texlive, isolating problem
  into a small patch is unrealistic effort.

  release note.  The module code nature of texlive should make this safe
