There is a better way to constrain backporting, that is Cc: # 3.12+

The reason I mention it is that Fixes tags could be seen as a way to 
identify commits that introduce bugs, e.g. for the purposes of training 
AIs, or attributing blame, or measuring quality etc. I think it would be 
unfair to point the finger at Peter's commit.
