It is not confrontational, as it has been pointed out by others
here. You might rephrase what I meant to say as:

    6. This particular developer knows there is more to a release than
       his personal (or particular group's) points of view, and
       acknowledges any decision put forward by the release team, as
       long as they listen to the project real concerns, will be
       better informed and, thus, better than any random date that
       might be pushed forward
