It's a worthwhile use of a release manager's time precisely becuase failing to
manage risk can result in an unsuccessful or delayed (again) release.  Anyone
that has managed a project of notable size can atest that under all but the
most extraordinary circumstances, risk management is critical.  If we wait
after the release to analyze the risks, we may never get there.
