Honestly, the off-week really isn't. If we're going to talk about
throwing a stall week into the dev cycle for spacing, I'd honestly
rather just push the release back, and be clear to folks that the summer
cycle is going to be shorter. The off-week I think just causes us to
lose momentum.

The one thing that felt weird about the cadence of the 1st milestone in
Havana last year was that it was super start / stop. Dec 11 means that
we end up with 2 weeks until christmas, so many people are starting to
wind down. My suggestion would be to push K1 to Dec 18, because I think
you won't get much K2 content landed that week anyway.

For US people at least this would change the Dec cadence from:

* Holiday Week - Nov 28 is thanksgiving
* Dev Week
* Milestone Week
* Dev Week
* sort of Holiday Week
* Holiday Week

To:

* Holiday Week
* Dev Week
* Dev Week
* Milestone Week
* sort of Holiday Week
* Holiday Week

Which I feel is going to get more done. If we take back the off week, we
could just shift everything back a week, which makes K2 less split by
christmas.
