Best answer is "probably" since Mono.Security API is public and stable.
So it's possible to add things we can't remove features (even if we
don't like them ;-). 

But if you keep this in mind while doing the changes, if they don't
introduce other problems (e.g. new dependencies) and provides unit tests
then it should not be a problem to merge things back.
