We have already shipped milestones and release candiates of Cocoon 2.2. I'm a 
bit puzzled why we should switch our agreed release strategy now. I also think 
that if we switch, it will take us another year or longer until Cocoon 2.2-final 
is ready - in my opinion that's much too long just because of a few bugs.
