I don't think this is a good idea, since trunk is currently what
beta testers use, and what will eventually be released.
The idea with using feature-flags is that they by default are turned
off so a beta tester, and even in released code, you won't notice
unless you turn that flag on.
It is not practical to use for all things but is a technique to avoid
branching. So for developing new functionality, that is likely to be
activated in trunk in a short time period, I'd would suggest hiding it
behind a feature flag.
Just right now it can of course be problematic since we don't have any
support for feature flags but could be a fun thing to implement. ;-)
