Here is an alternative wording, hopefully it will make things clearer:

Both CC and Fixes work and having both does not hurt.

Fixes provides clear indication when/where the problem originates.
Cc _explicitly_ requests the patch to be in stable - that's why we
have the list + late nominations.

It _explicit_ nomination does _not_ apply then the nominator is informed.
