Speaking from personal experience/observations, as far as I know the
Emacs developers don't have strict rules about having uni-directional
changes.  And this is not unique to Org; I've seen similar changes in
both directions in other projects developed outside emacs.git that are
periodically merged into emacs.git.  Eliminating the need for keeping
track of such changes is one potential argument for developing Org --
and those other similar packages -- inside emacs.git itself. :)
