I feel a bit foolish, but it looks like all this is moot.  Apparently
the code I'm talking about has been merged in meomutt already.  I look
forward to seeing how this further divides the code bases.

Richard wrote earlier in this discussion:

I thought he was talking about my label changes that were
committed upstream about 3 weeks ago.  But according to
https://www.neomutt.org/feature/keywords an older version of the current
code was committed 2016-05-30. So you can find it there.

But anyway, to address your bigger concern:

No, it's not. But -

I'm not discarding input, not at all.  But I'm talking about code
that I'm going to commit to mutt if it passes discussion in the mutt
developers community.  That discussion needs to happen on the mutt
developers' list, not on the neomutt github or neomutt-devel list.  It's
not fair to my community for me to discuss it with your group and then
commit it to mutt, cutting them out.

That discussion begins when I post the code to the list.  Not when I
give neomutt a heads up about it.
