The extra restrictions during RC are more about not doing things that
might force the release to be postponed while a broken change gets
unwound. During normal maintenance, we have a bit more time to recover
based on buildbot failures or post-checkin review.

Another way of reading that paragraph is "once we hit RC, start
postponing everything to the next bugfix release, *unless* at least 2
core devs agree it really needs to be in the current release"
