Huh, as I see it, this has changed and a.) NMUs to fix RC bugs are generally 
very much encouraged and b.) NMUs to fix other bugs are also perceived much 
better nowadays than "in some old days".

Especially if the NMU is properly done (eg documented in the BTS, uploaded to 
DELAYED-foo, etc) I've hardly seen any complaints in recent years.
