IMHO that is a thin rope to walk on. Regular releases should be a
priority. Introducing changes, however harmless-looking, always risks
introducing new regressions, as we have just seen.

If I were the release manager, I would not accept any additional
"improvements" in a RC-frozen version unless there is a clear and
_urgent_ need.

But, then, I'm not the release manager.
