You're missing my point. Criteria which should be used for decisions are the 
ones which are important to the project. I don't see marketability as being 
an important criteria here. The naming is just one evidence of that....

As such, release dates should be based on real criteria which actually
matter to the project, not on unimportant factors like ease of marketing
tie-ins.
