Yes, it could be. We haven't done that for any other port before so I'm not sure why it should happen for rust now, but yes, it could be done.

I think forks don't preserve releases, pull requests, issues, etc. If you would like those things preserved, you could transfer your repo to the MacPorts organization.

All of this presumes that upstream will not accept whatever changes you've made. Have we already confirmed that that is the case?
