A few items proposed in STATUS for 1.5.x have already been merged to 1.6.x.

Why don't votes on backports automatically count for both active branches?
We could just assume an implicit +1 and merge the candidates that are
already in 1.6.x. Unless someone explicitly vetos a change for just one
particular release line, or there are significant merge problems for one
release line (which will be noticed, someone has to do the merge),
I don't see much reason for spending the additional review cycles.
