I'm buying myself time to review :}

The other distributions are listed on MAINTAINERS and their respective
glibc developers should follow this list, even orthogonally, and if we
make this change it will go into the release-specific wiki page documenting
distribution changes (like we did for DEFAULT_SOURCE and your other change).
So they should have visibility just before the release.
