They should be able to. Since we won't have had a GA release (JCP rules)
until Mustang ships, it seems any critical bug that we find and fix
between Sep 15th and Mustang shipping has the potential to require a new
release candidate and new vote. Could even be a database format change.

Not sure I understand the point of this paragraph. I thought the JCP
rules mean we can't make 10.2 GA in mid-Sep, thus it seems to be a
hypothetical impossible situation.
