I am not sure I understand what you mean.

The intention does not seem to be "we must not fix old bugs in the
stable version" but more something like "we should not do anything but
fix regressions once rc1 is out".

I expect the various issues which have been raised (apply-delta w/o
default archive, explicit tag of files in {arch}) to be acceptable to
fix in the stable branch once 1.2.2 is out.
