IMHO, this approach is absurd. Moving the freeze date of more than two months
won't reduce the number of RC bugs. It will bring a lot of new upstream version
and a lot of new packages in potato, therefore more bugs. 
Slink is very outdated and we continue to postpone the new release. If we
freeze in january we will release an old distribution. For example if Linux
could be able to have a 2.4 kernel for Christmas, we would have potato out in
spring with kernel 2.2.
