Well, I think its more that most upstream do not see the advantage
of compiling in non-custom mode... What would you tell them ?

The original reason was to avoid unstrippable binaries, which violate
 policy (cf. #256900). The fix on OCaml side is simple, but upstream
 refused the patch on the grounds that -custom is actually deprecated
and applications using -custom should be fixed instead.

While this remains true (upstream completely deprecating the usage of
custom), I wonder why we don't apply this patch in our ocaml pacakge?

It doesn't change anything regarding the interface or usage and avoids
data-loss or broken binaries for our users. (It doesn't mean that we
still support custom... just that we provide a less broken implementation).
