Personally, I see no reason not to offer a newer kdenlive.

 It should actually be more stable (because of additional bugfixes) AIUI. Also, 
even if there would be problems, people could still use the standard version.
It's only a leaf package, and also not something that's essential for a 
working system ;-) (it's not even installed by default...).

I checked and at least 17.04.x will still build on 42.2 with the standard Qt5 
and KDE Frameworks... It will need a newer libmlt (>=6.4.0) though.
I of course cannot guarantee that this will continue to be the case, though I 
don't really see a good reason currently why kdenlive might require a newer 
Qt5 or KF5 in the foreseeable future.

Newer libmlt versions should be compatible enough so that packages built with 
6.2.0 will still work I think. I did try that with kdenlive recently, i.e. 
running kdenlive from the standard repos/Packman with a self-compiled libmlt 
But then, apparently kdenlive is the only package in Leap 42.2 that uses 
libmlt anyway (according to "osc whatdependson").

So my opinion: go for it, especially considering that Packman used to provide 
the latest kdenlive (and libmlt) since years.

Btw, to come back to the original question here: kdenlive 16.12.3 has been 
accepted to Factory last weekend, and is available in the standard repos 
meanwhile, and in Packman too.

Kind Regards,
