for allout and other emacs-repository things that i maintain, i have
my own repositories where i do my development - i can be more casual
about commitments there - and on suitable occasions i apply the
changes to the emacs repository version.  i haven't noticed problems
keeping xemacs compatability for code that lives in the fsf
repository.  i don't mind the extra step in exchange for the broader
availability of the code gained by inclusion in emacs, proper, and
easier access for others wanting to apply fixes.  in general, the
quality of the developers with emacs repository access is high enough
that it's a net win.
