It's funny that the release team needs to know about transitions for 
etch that might occur in 2006 now, while even the freeze date for sarge 
isn't yet announced.

Why are the people who want information that much in advance the same 
people that announce freeze dates 6 days before the start of the freeze?

A _realistic_ [1] sarge timeline announced _in time_ [2] was IMHO of 
much higher value than planning post-sarge transitions.


[1] no "aggressive goals" and double-checked that all release milestones
    are achievable
[2] so that Debian maintainers know before the upload when low urgency 
    uploads will have no chance of getting into sarge
