Well, I think Manoj is right here. Freezing in ~5 months would effectively 
delay or cancel several innovations within Debian which has been planned and 
worked in for several months before. It is just a too short as a timeframe for 
such a giant mass like Debian to manoeuvre towards a freeze with two new 
kfreebsd ports recently taken on board.
