Remember I also tried to push for more features to go in early? That would have given more time for external testing. Still features are coming in. Python developers weren't happy about having to get things in earlier. I don't see a practical way to implement what you propose (see Anthony's comments).
Following up on this point: Given the number of "just-this-one-more-thing-please" we've _already_ had since the b1 feature freeze, do you really except that 90 days of feature freeze is feasible? And if there's not going to be a feature freeze, there's hardly any point to people doing testing until there _is_ a feature freeze, is there? Oh, great, my code works with 2.5b1. Oops. 2.5b9 added a new feature that broke my code, but I didn't test with that.
