Which "actual problems" are we talking about here? What problems would
arise from this policy change for alpha/beta releases?

Please note: strictly speaking, it is not really a change in policy,
because we haven't really been producing alpha and beta releases until
now. An alpha or beta release is still considered an Apache release, and
therefore falls under the 3+1/no-1 rule. We have traditionally been more
conservative with our releases and release candidates, and this proposal
actually continues that tradition by proposing slightly stricter rules
for alphas and betas.

Nobody is proposing this.
