I think relative references would not include ".." such that it
reaches *out* of the root of the line of development. If you want to
do that, then I'd suggest a rooted path like ^/branches/upstream
instead.

It *is* quite special. That's where everybody goes for the latest and coolest.

You can call it "just another branch". Or you could call it "trunk".
