The problem is there aren't really criteria, it's a very squishy thing.
We usually take at least one not-strictly-a-blocker fix during the RC
phase of a release, based on a sort of instinctive judgement call that
gets kicked around between QA and rel-eng.

It's really really hard to codify this, because there's just so many
parameters. We did a decent job, I think, of codifying the issues that
can really block a release, but the risk vs. benefit calculation
involved in 'should we take this fix for this spin' is a massively more
difficult thing to codify :/

if someone wants to try that would be awesome, but honestly I wouldn't
know where to start.
