That's far too complicated. What you probably want are (mandatory)
feature toggles for every major feature as part of the iD codebase,
allowing the osm.org website repo to selectively enable/disable
controversial features in case this is really needed.

It's not beautiful but might help to establish a bit of a balances of
power without a need to have a dedicated patch team to fix up iD (which
won't work anyway).
