Flatpak could certainly have a similar one. Exception approvals are handled
directly by the SRU team, there is no need to get approval from the technical board.

The process for getting Flatpak SRU'd into Ubuntu, and for getting a special
exception approved for new versions, is documented in the SRU wiki page you
linked to. Once you have drafted the required wiki page, you can ask the SRU
team for approval directly.
