SRU process [1] states that bugs that "have an obviously safe patch and
affect an application rather than critical infrastructure packages
(like X.org or the kernel)" could be candidate for an update.

When I was a motu-sru member, I approved several non-critical bugs if
more users required such a fix, and nobody complained as long as the
test phase was conducted correctly.

I think the best approach would be keeping the same SRU process as we
already have, eventually extending it to other bugs with high user
interaction (i.e. papercut bugs).
