I'll second this.
People take unstable to be unstable (and therefore probably not usable enough)
while frozen implies near release quality, which will more or less work
with a few rough edges that will be worked out RSN.
I think if we want RC bugs to turn up sooner then we may well have to
resort to the BSD style snapshots, in order to get the unstable out to
those people who don't have a T1.
Coordinating things will be the fun part. To find a time that most things
work and dump that to a cd which distributers can put around to those
who would love to give it a go but can't because they can't get a hold
