Yes. If the upstream project is slow in accepting your patches, or there is disagreement (!)
about the patches, it's fine to make the change here and release it. Then it's a social issue
getting agreement from the upstream on the patches.

And keeping the local fork as much as possible in sync with the upstream has obvious benefits.
