Our opinions differ then.

What's "misplaced" about suggesting that  a
person that identifies and submits a patch
for a code form viewed as sub-optimal could
fix the other instances of that code form?

I wrote "trivial defect".

That'd be good too, with the caveat that
those "real bugs" can take a rather more
intensive effort to identify, isolate and
correct without introducing other defects.
