No good reason.  No one checked it into the release branch.  Before the OS shipped, there might have been other things that needed changing, there weren’t.  I wanted it to bake on trunk first before hitting the release branch which is why when it went in originally, it didn’t also just go into the release branch.  This is the first time it has been pinged.

I’m fine with the obvious fix to trunk to resolve that.
