I don't think that the most important release goals can be expressed in
terms of version numbers. For example, RC bug fixes. I don't find goals
such as "we want version X of package Y because it's the newest" to be very
useful in producing a quality release, nor do I believe that these are the
kind of goals which are responsible for Debian's long release cycle.
