need a place to set defaults for release configs


(Release Engineering :: Release Automation: Other, enhancement, P3)

(Whiteboard: [configs])

There's a lot of duplication across release configs which is annoying, and sometimes causes issues when we need to mass-update them -- it's very easy to screw it up.

We should have a place to set branch defaults as well as production/staging/preproduction defaults for release configs. This is very similar to what's already done for regular dep/nightly configs, but I don't think release-specific variables should be intertwined there. Also, we have no use for platform defaults in releases.

A couple ideas:
- Set up separate data structures in the existing {production,staging,preproduction} and for release variables.
- Define defaults in data structures at the top of process/
Ben: still needed?

This may end up being wontfix/unnecessary with CI build promotion.
Release configs are dead after the upcoming release promotion work is done, this isn't worth fixing now.
