I think it depends on whether the release goal is considered RC (release 
critical) or not. Even if you freeze the software versions, the release 
team can still grant exceptions in such cases and even without timed 
freezes, if a release goal is not ready it is not ready (dependency 
based boot for lenny, just to name an example).

I don't think this is a fair comparison. Yes, it is free donated labor, 
but it doesn't mean that it's worth $0!
