Please provide some more information about the plan for Org development.
Suppose we merge 7.8.02 into trunk; what assurance would we have that,
within months, the Org team wouldn't switch tack and "strongly suggest"
the latest Org containing yet more features, rather than 7.8.02?  That
would defeat the purpose of a feature freeze.
