Sure, in the early stages of the release process, but near or past
D-day, as any decent CMM zero team we switch to panic mode. We hotfix
things in the release branch, and (re)release, then after the dust has
settled merge back to trunk. And then see what was wrong with the hotfix.

No problem: you just need to record-only a merge of all the early
revisions of the branch that you _don't_ want to merge back to trunk
(like changesets that are merges from trunk themselves), and then you're
set to easily merge all hotfixes back to trunk.
