Such threatening does not serve anything, even more when before seemingly 
knowingly ignoring rules like feature freeze and string freeze. Rules are for 
everyone, there are no developers more equal than others in our code farm 

Instead I proppse to set the default config flag to match the old behaviour. 
If that is not possible, it has to be hard-coded then.

There is always a next feazzre release a few months later thanks to release 
service. Rushing things in last minute and breaking the rules harms the rules 
and quality of the products. Let#s leave that to bad companies.
