If it's something that isn't maintainable, because the upstream
package is too hard to follow across a major version release cycle, it
should be pulled from base. Otherwise, I'd say carry on as usual.
Otherwise, there really isn't any difference in package organization
from Linux; granted, I would still like to see granular definitions in
packaging metadata so one could pick and choose between base and ports
openssh for instance, but that's still a nicety that hasn't come true.
