[DVS] How to mark an extension as belonging to two packages?

I've got a case in Connectors where I've extended Morph.
Now say that someone comes along and wants to modify that method in 
their package (i.e. to override or modify my extension to Morph). How 
should this method be marked to indicate that it belongs to both 

Right now the test is something like "method category begins with '*', 
packagename". So if they prepend their own package name, it 
disappears from Connectors.

I see this (for instance) in Jacaranda, where Hernan fixed a method 
from Connectors.

He relabled the method category as "*jacaranda-*connectors-something". 
However, that makes it disappear from Connectors unless I change the 
category back.

Would it make sense to change the logic so that the above would be 
seen as both a Jacaranda *and* a Connectors method?
