I opted to reply to your mail after reading all the other replies.
FWIW, I agree with you and have been doing that for desktop-effects and
KDE packages. Whenever we need to add a patch we do it as ${P}. If that
patch is not applied upstream and is needed for future versions, I
rename the patch to ${PN} to "decouple" it from a particular ${PV}.
