[webkit-dev] Enabling Experimental Features

Hello WebKit,

Recently, I've been thinking that it would be great to be able to enable experimental features in the WebKit nightlies. It seems like it would be valuable for folks using the nightlies to have the ability to opt-in and test-drive new features that are not yet shipping by default.

For example, a couple folks at Adobe have been working on the CSS Exclusions and Shapes specification [1]. There is some experimental functionality that is currently turned off by default, and toggled on for testing via bindings/generic/RuntimeEnabledFeatures.

What do folks think about adding a mechanism for users to toggle features like this on in WebKit nightlies? I don't have a definite approach yet, but wanted to float the idea for feedback.
