I guess it meant that I wasn't prepared to commit it at the time. I 
should have been clearer, something like '+0.9 to commit'. :-)

That's up to you or any other committer. If a committer trusts a change 
they can commit it. Any other committer with a different opinion has a 
number of choices if a patch is committed:

  - make the changes themselves after it is committed
  - enter a bug and hope it gets addressed
  - hope the contributor addresses outstanding concerns after the commit
  - not worry about any concerns they raised
  - veto the patch

So if I'd have said '+0.9 to commit' one could have probably guessed 
that I wouldn't veto the patch.  :-)

I think that's up to you. I did consider changing the name in the patch, 
but changes that seem simple have a habit of requiring more work than 
one thinks and at the time I didn't have time to fully look at it 
(changing the name, fixing up comments etc.)
