Milestone releases had lots of unfinished *new* functionality, as we  
only guaranteed that the *existing* functionality is working. Same  
thing here, only the scope of unfinished functionality is limited to  
the Modeler. We define what Milestone vs. Beta vs. RC means, and  
historically the meaning has been what I just mentioned. Don't see any  
problem with this approach going forward, as long as we explain the  
rules to the users.

Also the downside of NOT declaring Beta until we reach some ideal  
state throughout the board, is that the feature creep will continue,  
and it will be hard to stop it.
