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.
>> 2. What is the general policy for WebInspector features? How and 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.

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<http://bugreporter.apple.com> explicitly requesting it.
