I think this kind of stuff could be handled in new architectures. For
example the Adamantix project could be merged back by creating
an architecture i386-adamantix for the stack protected stuff, and 
the other parts being a "CDD" by the terminology of the above link.

(I do not know enough about the history of the project to tell if its
developers would consider merging back a good idea or an organisational
impossibility. But the main point is not about that, or even that project
in particular.)
