the process for adding new features to Apache 2.0 is to first integrate the
feature into Apache 2.1 (cvs HEAD).  after that, the feature is voted upon
for inclusion in the stable 2.0 branch.  from the bug report, it sounds like
not only is the feature not in 2.1, but that it hasn't been decided what its
final form will be.  so there are a few steps left to overcome for this
feature yet.

that, and although this is really the call of the release manager, in
general I would expect that once a release candidate is tagged changes to
the tree should be minimal (doc changes, for example) or extreme (like
just-discovered security flaws, in which case the tag is probably tossed and
the release number skipped).  or something like that :)
