I hope I can clarify the current purpose of our branches:

  emacs-25: We're preparing this for release, so everyone should be very
  cautious. Even a safe fix, if not necessary, should go to master now.

  master: Work toward Emacs 26. Most changes should go here, but new API
  changes and new functionality should still not be introduced without some
  discussion on this list.

  feature branches: Commit anything you like, for review by others on this

When it comes to emacs-25, it's not that your change was improper, it's just
that a question was raised, and so it needed to be addressed.

I apologize if it sounded like you were being jumped on, that was not the
intent. It was purely out of caution for this branch -- a caution that will
continue to intensify as we approach the hopeful target of June 21.
