I'm not a committer (or voter) either, but IMO, because this is not a
regression, it should not hold up the release, especially because the
release contains other potentially serious security fixes.

If this were a regression, I would agree with you.

5.5.27 should be shipped as is with the security fixes, and then have
the security patch reviewed and applied which fixes the security issue
so that it's ready for the next release.

I've been testing 5.5.27 internally using my applications and have not
noticed any issues with it.
