Ben has "just" closed a lot of linux bugs which only affected 2.6.32 with a 
note saying

"Debian 6.0 Long Term Support has now ended, and the 'linux-2.6' source
package will no longer be updated.  This bug is being closed on the
assumption that it does not affect the kernel versions in newer Debian

If you can still reproduce this bug in a newer release, please reopen
the bug report and reassign it to 'src:linux' and the affected version
of the package. [...]"

That said, *I don't believe* Ben would be against fixing really critical bugs 
in linux-2.6 should one pop up in, say, the next two weeks…

Looking more at the wider future, I think it would be great if we could 
support one LTS version until the next oldstable becomes oldstable-lts.
