BTW, the response to this is the consisent response we have had over
the years.

We work really hard to bring everything together on one day for
maximum impact.  We don't want to subvert that without serious reason.

On occasion a person must get access to the bits in advance.  For
example, a group planning a release party for the day of the release
is going to be where the bandwidth is slow, unreliable, and
expensive.  By having the bits with them, they greatly improve the
experience (or even make it possible).

It should be noted that anyone can get the actual bits that make up
the GA release by drawing from rawhide, or using the Preview and
updating to rawhide.  So, there are ways for people to take care of
themselves without requesting a break of release policy.
