First of all, there really is no such thing as a "few minute" fix. Fixes need to be implemented, reviewed, checked in and potentially merged into multiple streams, tested, regression tests implemented - all of which takes more time. Given that we end up with lots of small fixes such as this which are competing for attention, we tend to focus on those which are the biggest obstacles to be fixed in hotfixes. Other things will be planned for future releases during the planning phase for a release. If submitted before that planning phase, or even if the plate is too full for a particular release, they may be marked Inactive-Backlog. These are then reconsidered at the next planning phase - we cannot plan the next release as we go along as otherwise it would always be first-in first-out rather than assessing the overall requirements.
So no need to campaign for this in public; it's not being ignored.
