I can, of course, not speak for Matthias, but my percepetion of
the ma branch always has been similar to the ac patches to the
linux kernel. Some of Matthias' changes go into the official
(i.e. Cornelius') leafnode, some of them don't. If Cornelius
releases a new version Matthias ports his uncomitted changes to
the new release.
Anyway, the two are not really different. The release cycle
of the ma branch is a bit shorter but contains usually the same
functionality as the official branch. IIRC Matthias has never
added a new user side feature but only new APIs (clean style
being more his intention than "feature creep").
