Yes. We do this, and it's much better, than thinking about 'how to split 
one neutron to bunch of different packages'. Repackaging is mostly or 
bugfixes (hello from havana - we still backporing fixes from 
juno/icehouse), or minor changes for own needs (like 'strict host 
isolation' filter) - and 'do it from scratch' is too heavy.
