The initial report in that issue is about the elevated Burn not about the clean room. What part of the issue would be helped by not doing clean room?

For https://github.com/wixtoolset/issues/issues/5658, I'm not convinced that we are going to be able to find a foolproof workaround for these problematic AV's. Would it be acceptable to add a /disablecleanroom switch, disable clean room if running in a specially name folder, or something else like that instead? I would think that would be ok security-wise since if a malicious entity can run our bundle with that switch they already have code execution.

Also, have we submitted the latest v3.11 to each of the vendors in the issue - Avast, AVG, PC Matic SuperShield?
