The changes you mention are already finished and being tested on Testlive (with the Orb of Nergal fix coming with the next Testlive iteration). 2.5.3 is a small patch and contained some hotfixes that were relatively easy to address and put out, while 2.6 is an update that requires more time in testing. It was originally released last week on PC, with consoles receiving it now due to certification.
You can see what’s coming in the 2.6 patchnotes:
