Stretch and Buster were only meant as example, please consider my 
nitpick to have been:

    The name of the next release is generally known, latest by the time 
    of the freeze of the previous one.

In this particular case the Release Team was slightly late, but they 
made up for it by announcing the name also for the next release, which 
makes the lives of a few package maintainers easier.
