No, you face the same problem either way.  You have commit X in Emacs's
master branch and in Org's master branch, but not Org's maint branch.
Because the goal is to update Emacs to the latest Org release from Org's
maint [*], commit X would be reverted in the sync.  Sure, you could
selectively ignore the hunk that reverts back to maint's state
(i.e. keep the changes from commit X), but then you create a situation
where Emacs's Org files are a weird mix between the released version of
Org (maint) and the developmental version (Org's master).
