However, given the bugs currently being discussed, and the fact that
we're currently in a pre-freeze crunch, I'm reluctant to push this to
osstest staging right now.

On any stable branches with empty cd bugs, it would immediately fail
and cause blockages.

I'd like to make this change during the 4.7 freeze period, after fixes
for these bugs are available in staging.  During the freeze the fixes
can be backported to stable branches.

Thanks,
Ian.
