Good question, Drak.  I think it's acceptable for us to include
patches in a RPM that are backported fixes expected to be in the next
upstream release.  This happens frequently in the kernel, for example,
especially where Fedora contributors are providing said patches.  The
goal is always to reduce those fixes/patches to zero, or as close to
zero as possible.
