Having a fixed freeze start helps people plan, of course.  Having a
release date goal helps make it happen.

Just to toss out another example, PostgreSQL has been trying to get to a
time-based release system for a while.  It's getting pretty close now,
but these things take time and there will be challenges ahead.  Overall,
I think this is a good thing for Debian.
