IMO no. It means that if we have enough packaging resources (which
probably we don't, I can't tell), then we may just as well ignore an
upstream who's basically saying we should never package what they do, or
package the way they want, rather than the we we should.

As a user, I'd prefer Kubernets to be in Stable if possible. I'd be one
of these users who don't care about the latest shiny feature, and prefer
something stable, supported for YEARS to come, not just 3 months.
