Can you elaborate on 'this and a couple of other patches' - is that supposed to be all of the corresponding JEP 130? Some part of it? 

Considering that the JEP 130 has legal and docs implications that imply  more work having to be done than just back porting a couple of change sets, I think you need to try to make a stronger case for the proposed change. 

Is there a specific issue in JBS (or some other bug tracker) this change is trying to address?
