I think this would be really bad. First it will mean doing critical fixes and etc. (which happen no matter what) being done around Christmas with all the burden put on releng/PMC approvals and etc. Second, historically most changes go in M4-M6 which would happen to be summer period with many people on vacation making it even more disorganized.
