I've not heard any negative comments, so I am moving forward with this.
Having looked at the stats a bit more, I'm going to land this in two
chunks. The first will be to enable the rule on files in these
sub-directories of mozilla-central:
browser/ services/ toolkit/ taskcluster/
I'm aiming to land these on Friday (31st August), ahead of the 63 merges
to beta. As others suggested, this should make uplifts easier. Bug
1486739 <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1486739> is
