I haven't understood why you wouldn't just, essentially, release a new
4.7 version with more features. Are there schema changes?

As Kieran suggested, your sandbox would work. Ping Richard at
support at bryght.com if anyone wants an account on our public SVN repo
for anything Drupal related -- http://svn.bryght.com/dev/browser

Backporting is an interesting issue. We'll likely be maintaining a
couple of things in that repo in public -- e.g. jQuery for 4.7.
