But the freeze time is not for fixing bugs we already know about -- we
can fix those right now. It's for testing what we're about to release,
and fixing the bugs we find. I do not plan to go into the freeze with
a significant number of release-critical bugs still open.
At freeze time, it will be too late to do what you propose; the package
will instead be removed from frozen.

P.S. I've reconsidered some things while writing this, and I'll write
them up soon. Right now I just got back from vacation and I'm still
catching up on my mail. But the point remains that the time to fix
bugs is right now.
