Safari release branches are made for the purpose of Safari software
updates, so we don't normally make changes that aren't strictly
necessary for that purpose. If anyone else wants to make a release
based on a variant of our release branch I guess we should strongly
warn them against enabling additional experimental features. In the
past we have not had a problem with vendors copying release branches
and enabling unstable features, for example things like SVG
experimental features were in this state in the Safari-3-0-branch.
If there is a serious risk of a significant problem, I would consider
ripping out the code as an option.
