Bug Description

IMPORTANT: Fix this *before* shipping M56.

Chromium builds built with the default developer settings will enable all experimental features, even ones that aren't ready to be shipped yet. End-user builds of Chromium-derived code need to build with fieldtrial_testing_like_official_build=true to disable these.

See this thread where this was announced in 2015 for details:
https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/d/msg/chromium-packagers/UmdUH3AkQRE/TifdFA-OAgAJ

Notably, these settings in M56 aren't compatible with each other (one of the field trials is not shipping for M56). See https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=693943

Thanks! Apologies for the confusing flag name. I'm going to try to get some of this fixed up to be saner.
