I don't have an argument with any of those three points.

I also suggest that there is a difference between preparing a release and
actually doing a release.  In other words, one could prepare the proposed
artifacts as if they were to be in a release, without releasing them.  That
would allow audit of the key criteria.

Please elaborate at your convenience.  And where do you feel that an audit
of the release artifacts comes in?  Step 3?
