I have done a fair amount of bug-fixing during the freezes and asked for
them to be let through, and while it is a little bit of overhead to
write a three-line email that explains what bug I fixed, what the nature
of the fix is and that I believe it is harmless and worthwhile, I cannot
agree that the process is overly bureaucratic or cumbersome. 

The manual process of writing down a short note why your build should
get in despite the freeze achieves exactly what it is intended to
achieve: it slows down the churn in the tree.
