Unless I am mistaken, there is no need to rush any backout patch into aurora or beta. We should make a backout for nightly and test that things work. The existing hack should still continue to work as well, so Fx16 and Fx15 will be fine if we choose not to uplift.

Am I wrong?

Yeah, sounds like a good plan.

Sounds good to me - I do think it makes sense to get this change out sooner rather than later, though, since there may be unforeseen issues in the future with splitting our population across two UAs.
