Not sure I understand.

If I have a package on master in ELPA, and I want to main one version
for Emacs-26 and another for Emacs-27, how do I do this? The obvious
solution is to put in a branch. But now I have branched all the other
packages to.

For externals, we can do this, although we can't call it "emacs-26" or
"emacs-27" because someone else will have that branch.
