How does what is described there differ from what Linus said, or the
-stable team has been doing so far?

What specifically are you asking for that is different?

The -stable commits are exactly the same as they are in mainline
(Linus's tree). Are you upset by the fact that I am not saying, "Hey,
look, here's a bugfix that might be security related and here's how to
reproduce it!" in big flashing letters?
