While that change was well intended please don't pretend it did not have 
negative consequences.  It seems like 4.7 will never get to a stable 
point to freeze and RC.  When I picked up 4.7 a few weeks ago to 
evaluate for use (which seemed reasonable since I had read about a code 
freeze several weeks prior to that) it was pretty much non functional.  
Fundamental bugs in new forms API code (http://drupal.org/node/35570, 
http://drupal.org/node/35225, http://drupal.org/node/35594) have sat 
idle for 3 weeks and others where independently fixed after I delivered 
patches that did not know about the issues I'd filed (or at least they 
did not update my issues).  That is not the behavior of a healthy 
system.  When I was actively working on items for the 4.5 release it was 
never this bad.
