Safari release branches are made for the purpose of Safari software updates, so we don't normally make changes that aren't strictly necessary for that purpose. If anyone else wants to make a release based on a variant of our release branch I guess we should strongly warn them against enabling additional experimental features. In the past we have not had a problem with vendors copying release branches and enabling unstable features, for example things like SVG experimental features were in this state in the Safari-3-0-branch. If there is a serious risk of a significant problem, I would consider ripping out the code as an option.
