'Released' is a dev decision, not a user one. What you request is an upstream design choice, which we possibly get with 3.28. So nothing can be made on old releases as they only get 'security' fix and backport sometimes.

Nonsense) https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+bug/1164016 Many users have reported the bug is back on 17.10. I can't think of any reason why it should take more than a few minutes to fix it back for 17.10, other than maybe nobody among the people who were responsible for the fix have noticed yet.
