Because the change is integrated in all 5.x stable releases, and because 
it is just too old. It should be plainly obvious.

The issue obviously does not affect 90% of people (if it was, we'd have 
more than a few people complaining, it should be obvious ...), as the IE 
bug is a specific situation, unlike what Keith's FUD would want to show. 
However, it used to completely break Mozilla under SSL (as a compromise, 
I asked for Keith to show good faith and test it again, but all he 
seemed to be interested in is least effort in getting his patch in).
