I don't think this needs to be under freeze, so it needs no exception in the 
first place.

Adding testable configurations should be allowed at any time, as it increases 
our quality. The only gotcha is that you should ensure everything passes 
before you make the configuration enforced.

Changing how one of our binaries will get released is a different story, but 
that's not what you're asking.
