I think you should bring it up, and I think you should have
from the beginning.  This is not just about fixing a bug.

You're the one who is, in effect, proposing a change to Lisp.

This is not normal Lisp behavior.  This is a far cry from
quote and backquote, comma and period, all of which are quite
traditional for Lisp.

These are ordinary symbol-constituent characters, and should
not be handled in the way you've implemented.  (I wanted to
say "suggested", but you didn't suggest it to emacs-devel;
you just implemented it - in a bug thread, no less.)
