Speaking for myself (IE, not on behalf of my employer), strongly 
endorsed.  While the feature freeze is important, there's a good reason 
for the slight slippage here, and this is an important feature.  I have 
no issue with slight slippage as long as a serious, good faith effort 
was made with a realistic plan to hit the cutoff, as I think is the case
