It's not so much that we have a "policy" as that we have a finite number
of committers with finite time.  If any committer wants to go and fix
this trivial typo in a back branch, no one will say boo.  But I doubt
any of us will take the time either.  There are a lot of typos besides
this one, and always have been.  Personally I'd rather spend the time
proofing current docs.
