Major version upgrades - acceptable if in number only?

I maintain mozilla-https-everywhere, and upstream is going to release
version 2.0 soon. I hope. Anyway. If 2.0's only changes are new
supported sites, would it be acceptable to push it to EPEL, or should
I just use the repo I already have on If
indeed the only change is new rulesets, backporting would make the
resulting package 1.x in name only.

Thank you.
