But this works only if you fork off your topic from a commit that is in
both 4.7 and master, i.e., before 4.7 and master forked. Do you do that?

This is a very reasonable (and git-ish) way to avoid cherry-picks and
still avoid merging 4.7 into master. (But the latter, avoiding to merge
4.7 into master, is very un-git-ish.)
