You could create a new branch; or perhaps the current emacs-bidi branch
could be renamed to, eg, old-branches/old-bidi, leaving the emacs-bidi
name available for a new branch.

Having the code in the repo in its own branch will be useful for the
rest of us, especially given that you wrote that merging into trunk
would not happen right away.

And even if it were to happen right away, going through a public branch
may ease future bisection and other anthropological pursuits withing the

In any case, I cannot hurt to make your branch public, and there is no
