I was about to finally commit the latest patch [1] and realized I wasn't sure 
whether to commit it on master or on the emacs-26 branch.  

According to the CONTRIBUTE file (at least as I read it) a change like this 
should go on master.  However, I've been surprised in the past to be informed 
that a given change should go on the current release branch instead of on 
master -- I believe that's happened even with non-bugfix-but-still-small 
changes such as this one.  And I saw from Eli's recent post that emacs-26 is 
open again.

So, just checking: I should put this on master, right?

By the way, Drew, regarding your point:

I've been pondering whether that would be overly prescriptive or not... It 
might indeed be worth an extra sentence in the new documentation, and I may 
adjust the patch accordingly.
