Yes, they do prefer that strategy. But they don't support it.

How many diff-Naur patches do you see for the various "fix proposed"
quick fixes? Saying that "it is fixed in FriCAS" is trivial. You might
as well say it works in Mathematica. It takes a while to decide what
the problem is, what the correct fix is, what the regression test is,
whether the newly fixed code builds correctly, and then to create a
proper diff-Naur patch that includes all of that work.

Creating a diff-Naur patch is hard work. Complaining is trivial.
So if your personal opinion is that these things ought to be fixed
please post diff-Naur patches to the Axiom mailing list.

You have the incorrect impression that fixes are not being done
in Axiom. In fact, since the November release there are 15 bug fixes,
roughly one every 4 days. Some, but not all, of these bugs are the
same as the "published" ones. If you check the posted diff-Naur
patches on the mailing list you can see the fixes.
