In general, it is.  But a bug fix should be safe enough to be eligible
for the release branch, and the "enough" part changes depending on the
state of the branch.  Currently, since Emacs 26.1 was already
released, only very safe fixes are eligible, and I'd like to be part
of the decision loop regarding the safety of each proposed fix.

Because I said it many times here.  The fact is, most people do ask.
