+1.  I don't like this idea of having strict deadlines that we must
follow no matter what.

IMO it would be better to set a "recommended date" (Oct 1st is fine)
for submitting governance proposals.  We can start discussing them
publicly after Oct 1st, and will set a strict deadline for voting when
we are all comfortable.
