Of course this will work --- "master" is a branch like any other branch and
you could specify "master" in your pull request. It is not recommended
practice because:

   - You now have to wait until that pull request is processed to submit
   other work
   - If you now create a branch that change is part of the new branch
   - You are presuming that your pull will be accepted
   - Ideally, you want the master in your fork repository to always match
   the fork in the upstream master.

Creating a branch is cheap and mostly convenient. And yes, I understand the
difficulty of multiple development branches where you want some bit of code
from a sibling branch.

Even in my own personal projects I don't ever edit in the master branch.
