We should probably enable experiments in WebKit nightly (i.e. Experiments
tab will be enabled in WebKit Web Inspector's settings at all times). I can
do that for you or r+ such a patch.

when do they get enabled by default, at least in the nightlies? (Since
regions are already enabled by default in the nightlies, IMO it would make
sense to have the web inspector regions features, too)

The process of adding features into WebKit Web Inspector is very
lightweight. When you think the feature is ready for the prime time, make a
patch moving it out of experimental. We will review it and suggest if
something is missing.

automatically get new features. The best thing to do is implement it in the
Open Source inspector (as you've done) and Apple will (hopefully) merge it
in. You can also file a bug at bugreporter.apple.com explicitly requesting
