I talked to heycam before proposing this, and set up an explicit
deadline, along with the expectation that the current state of affairs
is totally fine to keep if we don't decide on anything else.

Heycam said that a change like this would be trivial to make, and
wouldn't slow down your shipping, since you're currently blocked on
another bug anyway.  Whichever way this gets resolved on the call next
Wed, heycam'll make the change (or not), and then flip the "shipping"
flag immediately after.

I'm being responsible with the change here - no need to stress.
