As I see it, all of those issues are present in 2.14.1, so releasing 2.14.2
is not making things worse.

I think we need to sharpen our policy here.  I think that Critical issues
that are regressions when compared with the last stable release should block
a stable release.

I can agree that a new major release (2.14.0) should have no regressions
compared with the previous stable release (2.12.x).

I don't think that critical issues present in 2.14.1 should prevent a
release of 2.14.2 that contains bugfixes, even though it contains the same
Critical issues as 2.14.1.

To my way of thinking, the current stable/2.14 is clearly better than
2.14.1.  There are no bug reports showing that it is worse in any way.

That being said, I guess we're a few days away from having 2 of the 3
critical issues resolved, and I'll argue that the third shouldn't be
critical, since it's not reproducible.
