I think it’s fine to push simple changes directly.  There hasn’t been a
single instance when you pushed something where I thought that it
shouldn’t have been pushed.

Between releases we are free to change things; they only have to be
mentioned in the ChangeLog for the next release.  ABI breakage can get a
little annoying if one doesn’t know about it and the compilation fails
with unclear errors.

It’s a little unfortunate that packages are developed together with
everything else, because this means that there is no way for people to
opt out of breaking changes until the next release without also opting
out of getting any updates at all.
