This was already considered and rejected by the release team.  Most of
the patches in question went in very close to the feature freeze deadline
(all but one, in fact, in the last week) and there is every reason to
suspect that they were rushed rather than really being ready to commit.
We should not allow an entire year's worth of work to slide in the
possibly-vain hope that these few patches can get fixed up if they're
given more time.

The bigger picture here is that we'd all like to get back to development
sooner rather than later.  The longer it takes to stabilize 9.6, the
longer it will be before the tree reopens for new development.  That
consideration should make us very willing to revert problematic changes
and let their authors try again in the next cycle.
