Sounds reasonable. Besu has some valuable things to contribute to the Hyperledger ecosystem, but probably the more salient is encouraging the larger sharing between the Ethereum and Hyperledger worlds even outside of Besu. I see several natural points of contact between Hyperledger and Besu + the larger Ethereum ecosystem:
(1) I can commit to getting Ursa used in as many Ethereum-related projects as possible. Right now that's not easy because there's no direct way to compile Rust to EVM. But after Ethereum moves to WebAssembly, this will become possible. But I will push for this.
(2) It's plausible that Ethereum could contribute to Hyperledger Explorer. We currently have several opensource blockchain explorers, such as:
I'm not on these block explorer teams, but given the overlap it seems plausible there's some common components so there's less duplicated work in both camps.
(3) It's plausible that Besu and other Ethereum clients (geth, parity, etc) can start contributing to the Caliper tool for improving performance of Ethereum clients. This also seems a natural point of collaboration.
