I believe the suggestion is to increase the frequency of merges with the
Emacs trunk s.t. every Org-mode major release is also a merge with the
Emacs trunk.  Then we have no need for a release-specific maintenance
branch *and* a branch tracking the Emacs trunk as they will be one in
the same.

I do think that (after the feature freeze) a tighter coupling between
the Org-mode and Emacs development repositories with more frequent and
less dramatic merges would be a good thing.  Although I don't know how
much manual work is required to accomplish each merge.
