When I originally envisioned the cipher policy, it was only to allow folks to turn them off

There might be cases where we turned things off an enterprise needs something on for some reason.

So we should allow for this.

Seems like this would be useful in ESR 78. It's getting late, but could still make b9 if it were requested immediately

Attached patch Patch for ESR 68Splinter Review

[Approval Request Comment]
If this is not a sec:{high,crit} bug, please state case for ESR consideration: Policy only, parity with 78
User impact if declined: Policy for 68 doesn't match 78
Fix Landed on Version: 78
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Low

See for more info.

I realize this is late and if it doesn't make it until next ESR, I understand, but this allows for us to have one policy that works for 78 and 68/

This missed the 68.10esr build unfortunately, but we can still uplift it for the 68.11esr build shipping alongside Fx79/78.1esr.
