I see no reason to require the emacs-29 branch to have a released
version of Org in it.  From the Emacs POV, what matters is that you
don't add new features to Org that is part of the branch after the
branching point.  Other than that, you can make the official Org 9.6
release whenever you want, as long as what will be on master
immediately before the branching point is close enough to 9.6, such
that only minor changes (and bugfixes) will be needed there before
Emacs 29.1 is released.

This is undesirable if what we have now on master is very different
from 9.6.  If it is not very different, you are free to release Org
9.6 whenever you want.
