I do not use threads so I cannot comment on the technical issue.
Since the current behavior is not clearly a bug, I do not think a change would or know that it should be applied to 2.7/3.1. So I suggest that you both
1. Suggest a doc patch on this issue. That should not controversial and might be quickly applied.
2. Submit a separate feature request issue to change behavior in 3.2 or beyond. You could request that the change be backported to 2.7 and try to make a case for doing so.
Unless you can quickly write a tested patch, such a change in unlikely to make it into 3.2 anyway. And even then, no guarantee.
