I say use your judgment. If you feel confident enough for it to be
enshrined for about 3 months in an official release, check it in. Soon
we will indeed want a proper release branch. This time it shouldn't be
more than a few days, and, probably good discipline to force everyone
to do nothing but documentation and test improvements for that time.
