I think they should, here's my reasoning:

The KDE part of the branch name means it's our "official" branch, i.e. it's 
done by KDE (not by individuals acting on their own), so basically our 
official namespace. We use $name/feature elsewhere, and I think KDE/5.37 would 
blend in nicely here. On top of that, it gives some continuity.
