Yeah, it could be as simple as all those experimental features are
enabled by default in the ENABLE(DEVELOPER_MODE) case, and they're all
disabled otherwise. Though then there's no way to have features
runtime-enabled features that are too unstable even for Tech Preview.

All CMake ports support ENABLE(DEVELOPER_MODE); is that defined
anywhere with the XCode build?
