_TELEMETRY _ON _BY _DEFAULT should be controlled by the channel-specific build defines, not the update channel
MOZ_TELEMETRY_ON_BY_DEFAULT currently depends on the value of MOZ_UPDATE_CHANNEL, which itself depends on the build configuration and leads to issues like bug 888765. Instead, it should be controlled by #ifndef release build, which depends on the version of the repository from which the code was built (mozilla-central, mozilla-aurora, mozilla-beta, etc., see https://wiki.mozilla.org/Platform/Channel-specific_build_defines).
I suppose this has the downside of enabling telemetry by default on developer-self builds in the cases where you: - build with MOZ_TELEMETRY_REPORTING - don't build with --enable-update-channel=nightly|aurora I think that's unlikely to be a problem in practice.
