Yes, please inform upstream. But such packaging issues are no excuse to
exclude that particular release.
I'm pretty sure that there is at least one other package that is also
shipped with .rej (which were apparently resolved properly) where we rm
-f $(FOO_DIR)/the/inappropriately_packaged.rej

Please consider doing the same for libxml2.
