That is a perfectly fine and good plan.

Please do not mistake this as a "this is how we should release Zope2 -
Plone rulez" opinion.

I'm trying to offer and communicate our roadmap, so it can be taken into
account for the Zope2 roadmap. We are not the only consumer and Plone
does have different priorities and practices than Zope. What is good and
practical for Plone might still conflict with what is good and healthy
for Zope. I'm very much interested in different opinions like yours, so
we can get a good roadmap that fits all the different interest groups.
