I think I am hesitant to use "upstream/downstream" terminology as
context markers primarily because that is relevant perspective for a
"downstream" but not a community project. This is a good way to
continue to make headway and not get blocked on things.

"upstream/contrib" is perhaps a pair I was thinking about. But not too
hung up about the word-pair.
