Similar to what we did for Websense, we intend to have a built-in add-on
(that can be updated via GoFaster if needed) that allows us to add special
markings in the update ping for whatever reason necessary.

The immediate need for it is from
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1296630, and
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1311515 is where this add-on
is being implemented.

Our target is Firefox 50, but instead of shipping it over-the-air with
GoFaster, we want to have it landed on the tree and shipped built-in. So
this won't require a GoFaster update for now, but will require uplift
approval for beta.

Let us know if there are any questions.
