Regarding the submission process, not quite. Patch contributors used to send their fixes through either bugzilla or this mailing list. It was not required to get into specifics of branch layout to get a good patch accepted. This order of things is preserved. 

Regarding the choice of which branch to deploy from, yes, everyone is free in making (or not making) this decision. I perceived the presence of this choice as critical for the project to go on, and make it available. Getting less confusion about the branches requires more convergence between master and RE-testing-0.99 (and more work).
