So would I, but I am not going to block the d-i RC1 release by switching 
to 2.6.18 before it is ready to migrate to testing. There is currently at 
least one RC bug open that will prevent that and I've seen various other 
issues flash by over the past week that looked to me like regressions or 
important issues (though maybe not RC).

So, it is too early to start switching lkdi packages. But if in the mean 
time you can do anything to help get the kernel packages into shape...

So, I'll wait until we hear from the kernel team release coordinator (or 
whatever Frederik likes to call himself these days) that 2.6.18 is ready 
for testing. I will then check with RM if that is OK with them as well 
and only then consider when to make the switch for d-i.
The sooner the better and if soon enough we can still use 2.6.18 for RC1.
