Not to sound to critical, but can I propose we use "freeze exception"
rather than "freeze break"?  I think the word "exception" helps people
understand that we're taking something in that we normally wouldn't --
which is much more aligned with the message we're trying to send than
"nice to have" ever was.  And making an exception doesn't break the
freeze (except for that one package), so I think exception fits
