Minimum freeze period will be longer, since you need at least 72 hours 
to get the vote through, some time to prepare
the release candidate, some time to test it, etc. That can easily sum up 
to one week or two.

Over at UIMA we always freeze and then everybody helps with testing and 
new work which needs to go into trunk can also be worked on in parallel 
and be pushed into trunk
after the release. I personally like this model because it encourages 
everyone to help out with the
release work.
