We've done that before (see WAL in 7.1), with unhappy results.  The
fundamental problem with it is that towards the end of the cycle,
other developers don't know how to schedule their time, because they
don't know when feature freeze is really going to be.  People end up
twiddling their thumbs while the schedule slips a few days at a time.

The target-date-based approach we've taken in the last couple of
releases seems much more productive.
