The aim is to complete as many feature as possiblei without
shipping a broken 5.0.  There is, however, a limited number
of hands doing to dirty work.

No. 5.0-STABLE will be created after 5.0-RELEASE.  However,
Julian will probably have (a portion of) KSE milestone 4
committed before 5.0-RELEASE is released.

Features in the FreeBSD-current tree are often merged back to
FreeBSD-stable.  This include features in 5.x that get merged
back to FreeBSD 4.x.  There is no reason why features added
to 6.x can't be merged back to 5.x (other than man power).
