I was half way through writing a similar message.
You have done it so artfully. Thanks.

Scanning the current 0.7 issues to find the main priorities,
it seems mostly about consolidation of existing stuff. That
will still need to happen anyway. We should make the next
disruptive change (XHTML2) earlier, rather than just use
0.7 as our planned consolidation release. So i think yes,
move it forward.
