Note that that is only my opinion. You've gotta convince others to go
that long :-)

Further, I'm good with that only when knowing "what is left? how do we
cut if necessary?" types of questions. In other words, it isn't an
open-ended ticket to churn :-) Some kind of feature description of
what is in/out is still needed -- do you guys really have a handle on
this? Or are we going to continue to bumble along until one day it is
called "done".

I don't really care about the "hard" December date. A month or two is
fine. We want good, and we want stable. Hard rules tend to work
against those goals.
