In general, IMO,  Fedora Legacy errata policy should be to bump up to 
the newer upstream version on ancillary packages and backport fixes to 
only libraries or software that have other visible major dependencies 
and externally defined interfaces which are known to be used by third 
parties. If there isnt any opposition to this, I will add this piece of 
info to the wiki pages and FAQ on legacy.
