No, you should base on the oldest -rc that works for you to avoid backmerges.
When I start the next/soc branch from -rc1 and I pull in a branch that
is based on -rc4, 'git request-pull' can no longer figure out what the
base changeset was and I have to manually edit the pull request.

Let me know if that is a problem.
