Because it wouldn't be released ever, otherwise. The Emacs bug tracker
contains 1742 open bugs in state "serious,important,normal" as of
today. I bet there are many open bugs we could apply the same reasoning
as you have given above.

Emacs 26.1 is in code-freeze. Bug#31355 does not block Emacs 26.1, and a
workaround (your patch) does exist. So I don't believe this bug shall
stop the release.

But I'm neither the maintainer nor the release manager, which will
decide. Eli? John? Nico?
