Erm, maybe it's exactly this what makes it important!

Debian got a lot of bad press for the late sarge, how about a lot good
press for in time Etch?

But for this, it must be really in time, which is already too late :)

Maybe a press release about the freeze is a really good idea and
motivates the developers for their good work, and to keep it running to
try at least to be as less late as possible...
