It seemed better when I was leading d-i to just do it, rather than
talk about doing it.

(Which AFAICS also holds true of this thread and/or CUT.)

The problem with the moving target is that it means that d-i betas begin
to be broken as time goes on after their release, starting with the
smallest boot images and moving up to the netinst images.
(Full CDs tended to be ok then, but probably only DVDs are self-contained 
enough to not be affected now.) That is mostly a problem outside the
freeze, so most d-i betas (and much final d-i integration work) is now done
inside the freeze. As has been noted, that tends to extend the length
of the freeze.
