Hi François.

Since this is not about backporting stuff to older TYPO3 versions but 
adding it to static templates being compatible to them, I think it 
should be OK to add it there as well.

But it should only be done, when the patch does not change or remove 
existing stuff but adds something new, since otherwise the compatibility 
might be broken.

Even people who added a menu type 9 with a completely different purpose 
should not run into problems though, since they had to override/add 
stuff of the original static template anyway, which shoud still be 
working even after applying your patch.
