My initial reaction is that I don't think that is really viable: The
images don't get rebuilt often, but it isn't something that really
should be blocked like that.  Our workflow and the the (to the team)
volunteer resources shouldn't be held up like that.

But I guess if the team has a credit card set up with GitLab I guess we
could add on credits when needed.  I do fear silly effects where a lot
of engineering time is wasted to avoid a $10 or $20 charge being made
however (to the the admin overhead).
