Well, you have to draw the line somewhere - we skipped KDE4 with lenny
and will apparently skip GNOME3 with squeeze. I understand that some
teams are unhappy not having been contacted before (maybe the security
team being the most important, IMHO), but I don't think there is a
historical precedence (or even clear desire) of the release team
contacting lots of teams beforehand on release timeline decisions.
