Backport patches are causing nothing than grief and frustrate upstream
Essentially what you are saying is that the very idea of SLES or RHEL
(or any LTS distribution) is completely wrong.
Sure, upstream developers would love everyone using latest released
version (or even development snapshot). Users, on the other hands, are
mostly not excited about continuous stream of regressions and
incompatible changes in behaviour.
Leap was presented as LTS-type distribution. If part of package
maintainers decides to ignore that and upgrade their packages whenever
they feel like it (or don't feel like backporting a fix), we get
a distribution which is part LTS and part "rolling upgrades" which may
end up making fans of both approaches unhappy.
