This is exactly what Jeff Eaton and I are doing with Links. There are still a
lot of production 4.7 sites out there -- and some of them are mine! -- so it
still makes sense to keep 4.7 as a "viable" branch for a while. But I expect
to put the serious new development into 5.x rather than 4.7.

Links may be a bit unusual in that much of the code is in an API file that
tries really hard to be core-version-neutral.
