This would be similar to what we did in the 1.3.4 release [1]. I think
it's fair to relax the release policy on old maintenance branches once
a more recent minor version is out.

However, to avoid making a mess of the release graph I'd only consider
doing such releases from old maintenance branches when there is a
major reason why an upgrade to a more recent version is not possible.
That seems to be the case here.
