It might also have the advantage of discouraging trivial cherrypick
suggestions in the first place -- shifting the question from "do I
think this is worthy of backport" to "is it worthy enough for *me* to
do the backporting work"?

(If someone does a lot of suggesting and then welshes on applying the
commits once approved, then we can find some appropriately
embarrassing way to encourage them to be more conservative in the
future. :-)
