Is what nacin suggested about writing a back-compat wrapper possible? I'm
not a javascript guru and I have no idea what the changes in masonry are.
But if an add-on of some type can be made to fix compatibility breaks, then
it's more likely to get in.

The short end of it is that if at all possible, core upgrades cannot break
people's websites. If somebody is using Masonry 2 and upgrading core to
Masonry 3 will break that site, then Masonry 3 just ain't gonna go in. But
if a "masonry-fix" script can be added to prevent that breakage, well, that
will go over much better.
