Well, since Lua is only really compatible with the same X.Y.* version,
the requested change would have to happen with X or Y increased from
their current or past values, in which case one could argue that it is
OK to break code that was designed for version X.Y.

By the same token, anyone wanting that change could just make that
change in their own version of Lua.
