[Python-Dev] Fixing 2.7.x

With the incredibly long life span of 2.7, which bugs should we *not* fix?

For example, in http://bugs.python.org/issue22297 I mentioned one reason to not fix that bug was that the fix was not in 
3.1-3.3, but 2.7 will outlive all those plus a couple more.

So, what are the current guidelines on what to fix?  Is it still security only, with the rest being carrots for switching?
