Sure it makes sense.

Adding the slave side, where the slave is able to process the new smaller row
images, is required to be able to replicate from a MySQL 5.6 master running
with --binlog-row-image=minimal|noblob.

Adding the master side (the --binlog-row-image option) would additionally
allow a MariaDB->MariaDB replication to benefit from the possible efficiency
gain of smaller row events (in row-based replication).

However, with the way that merge procedures were changed at the MariaDB 10.0
release, non-InnoDB MySQL features or bugfixes are no longer added
automatically to MariaDB. It requires someone to manually do it on a
case-by-case basis.
