There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

A hardfork has been scheduled for May 15, for over a month now...

I've updated the language in the opening post to use the same "changes" terminology.

No Mac binary releases?

This is particularly unfortunate to not see a Mac v0.7.3 backport because many have found the v0.8.x Mac binaries not-quite-ready-for-primetime and have downgraded to v0.7.2.

If a Mac backport v0.7.3 binary isn't released before the 15th, should we be okay with running v0.7.2 and applying this workaround fix?

Gavin does all the Mac stuff, and he's too busy to get involved in backports.
Did you try 0.8.2rc1? If that doesn't work, I'd definitely open an issue (or follow up on an existing one) on GitHub...

Yes, that should be fine.
Do note, however, that 0.7.2 remains affected by two privacy vulnerabilities: CVE-2013-2272 and CVE-2013-2273
