We had a discussion about this at the contributor's meeting. I sent a draft resolution, which Bear linked to.

The idea is that people would send an email to the list when a feature is about to be enabled by default (at compile time, and at run time if they have such a flag, although we're trying to avoid that). It then is testable in Nightly builds.

So the goal is to allow people to use and test the feature. The fact that OS X is the only platform producing Nightly builds makes this a little weird, because it means you really only have to enable for OS X, but let's assume more platforms join the nightly party at some point.
