What would happen if you only requested a credit freeze with 2 of the 3 credit agencies?

What would happen if I put a credit freeze with two of the reporting agencies but not with the other one? If someone stole my identity would they still be able to open new accounts under my name? Also, theoretically speaking what would happen if an ID thief preemptively froze your credit essentially locking you out?

I'm planning on freeze all three of course. I'm just curious and the fact that Equifax doesn't let you setup a credit freeze online or through the phone while the other two agencies allow you to makes me a bit angry.
