Right now as things stand, we are building WR on all channels, and the qualified pref is on by default on 64. Unless a guard is added somewhere, 64 beta and 64 release will end up with WR enabled on qualified hardware. i.e. if we do nothing we'll accidentally release it before we're ready.

I think we probably want to release to beta 64 but we should still guard the pref with NIGHTLY_OR_EARLY_BETA or something.
Is NIGHTLY_OR_EARLY_BETA mean EARLY_BETA_OR_EARLIER?
Yeah, that. Sorry I didn't look up what the actual define was.
Since the go/no-go decision hasn't been made I'll use NIGHTLY_BUILD for now.
