Stable update policy is as follows:

1. The package fixes a security problem. An advisory by our own
   Security Team is required. Updates need to be approved by the 
   Security Team.
2. The package fixes a critical bug which can lead to data loss, 
   data corruption, or an overly broken system, or the package 
   is broken.
3. The stable version of the package is not installable at all 
   due to broken or unmet dependencies or broken installation 
4. All released architectures have to be in sync.
5. The package gets all released architectures back in sync.

I don't see any of above criteria matched here. Okay, one could argue
about 2 here (the package is broken), but i don't see a reason ATM 
to fix a normal bug in the next point release.

So no, i don't see this this as a valid candidate. Sorry.
