David, I think there is a misunderstanding here.
As it has been discussed previously, the goal of the first release (4.7 or 
4.8 or 4.2012 or ... ) would be like a practice release for the project, not 
a "look world, here is the first Apache Flex release"
So the PR of this release would be minimal, and would mainly consist of 
"don't use this release for production work but only if you want to help the 
Apache Flex project to test what is already broke from the transfert to 
Apache".

I agree that it's the downside of a 4.7/4.8 release name: the version 
increment can cause some confusion about expectations of features/bugfixes.
But in a way, it will be our job not to promote this first release, to avoid 
confusing users, and to explain what is its point to those who will need 
clarification.

Dimitri K.
