Since we are so close to 4.6, it seems freezing it is totally legitimate.
You can keep on working on your own branch and bring master changes in as they are made.
Once 4.6.0 is out, you can submit your PR and merge back in master...

I don’t think this slows you down, it just delays your changes to get into master.
