Because I'm going to upload 1.16.8 pretty shortly with new translation
updates, less than 10 days have passed (but even if 10 had passed that
would be too short) and I was planning to request an unblock later on
once there's been enough time for any other regressions to show up,
I'd just disregard this request.

In addition because the automatic freeze exception was for 1.16.5, which
would have gone in anyway, I don't see the point in asking the release
team to review the diff starting from the testing version. I think it
makes more sense to use a diff from 1.16.5.. onwards, but obviously
the release team might disagree with that.
