Yes, and that's exactly why we need it in master.

I think 1 week is the time to feature freeze, but we have lots of time
to fix bugs and issues.  Changing the module ABI/API for instance is
IMHO perfectly OK during the feature freeze.  The feature is "dynamic
modules" not a specific version thereof, until Emacs is released.  Then
it becomes "dynamic modules as defined by 25.1" and we have to live with
them :)
