Yep, that's always a concern.  That's why I wouldn't want to commit hard
to any F12 dates.  We would certainly re-evaluate the F12 plan once F11
is "in the can" as it were.  But we can have the "if everything goes as
planned" type targets.

As far as avoiding slips, there are a few other schedule tweaks we're
looking to make, such as moving the feature freeze a week earlier than
the actual beta freeze, and staggered freezes for some core components
of the OS, to give us more last minute integration time while not in a
code freeze.  My thought is that it'll lead to less problems /during/
the freeze, and thus shorter freezes and less slips.  But that's
intra-schedule stuff, I'm still interested in overall end dates.
