We have a single freeze which does make things easier.  There is a
group of people who can approve the flag, they all have rights to it
and we rely on clue so e.g. the netbook approver doesn't approve
tablet requests.

Agreed that this alternative would be more sensible than presenting
multiple flags.  If you require that people explain what their change
does so the approvers understand what freezes are being broken, then
it should become automatically peer reviewed if say the i18n team
approved a code change.
