I agree with Dan. Really we're treating the RC as if it were a beta.

In corporate sw dev environments, there's a code freeze for a given
version *months* before the release for QE. And STILL last-minute
bugfixes end up breaking things in the final product. (And
tech-support, where I work, has to clean up the messes.)
