What about a 3 step scheme :

stable + updates

unstable -> becomes frozen when frozen ..

developpment, experimental, whatever you want to call it.

another way of shortening release time is to work with a dual team, one for
unstable, the other for development, at least for critical packages, but do we
have enough developpers for that ?
