If a port meets all of the requirements for being a release candidate
architecture, and promoting it to release candidate status doesn't introduce
too many arch-specific RC bugs that were previously being ignored, then I
have no problem with promoting such an architecture to release-candidate
status late in the cycle.  It would almost certainly have to be done
pre-freeze, for sanity's sake, but that's about it, AFAICT.
