Then forget about it (2), unless requested by other users. What
upstream does not provide, don't go out of your way to do it yourself.
If users do request it, inform upstream and do it in your package (1).

It is then OK if upstream does not heed your request. You can continue
to provide it via method (1) as long as it has no adverse effects on
functionality and/or upstream support.
