Because m2 work is not the only work that's going on.  Not all work has 
stopped.  You are only speaking of the m2 conversion work.  There are 
other efforts underway.

As I mentioned above, the branch could get out of sync w/ trunk pretty 
quickly.  The only reason to make a branch is to isolate the m2 work 
from the m2 stuff that's being used in trunk.  But, the m2 stuff isn't 
being used in trunk.  Working in the branch and working on the trunk is 
then virtually the same since m2 isn't being used in trunk.

When the m2 work is done, we can fire up an RTC vote.  This is not to 
say that there won't be a healthy dose of discussion along the way.

It's ultimately up to the PMC and, most likely, Ken if it's following 
the intent of RTC.
