So what is the better option here, violate rules to prevent any users 
from 'suffering' - or for no meaningful reason (besides 'discipline') 
strictly adhering to that self-imposed code of conduct and finding ways 
to cope with the implications that might have?
Have you asked 4.7 release manager about it? It would come as a big 
surprise if anyone would be going to file an official complaint for 
breaching the freeze for this very valid reason.

Will not, because the KDE team will act with common sense, of course.
