definitely +1 from my side (as a non-core member). I implicitly trusted
that the person merging takes care of that or maybe some magic script
would nag somebody to please do it. I can only speak for other teams I
work in but think I can say that we usually also take care of the ports
as you describe.

And if backporting with testing is a bit more work, please at least
submit the backport for review.

Kind regards,
