I say beta 4 too. A release candidate gives too hight expectations, IMO. 

* First: people will expect a real release soon after. We cannot guarantee it. 
In fact, I think we all have the same gut feeling that a real release is 
still rather uncertain, in a near future.
* Second: A lot of rather big new patches went in. great! But untill we know 
if they did not introduce new issues (or actually really fixed them all), we 
cannot really esitmate the amout of time and effort needed for a stable 
release. After another betha, we should be more secure about all this.
* Thirdly: I -personally- beleive there are really too much bugs still open to 
release. Eventhough they are no showstoppers, still the queue is very long. 
And consider those listed, to be the bugs that were actually contributed, and 
found. We all know that the amount of not-reported (or not yet found) issues, 
is probably a lot bigger. A beta will bring these issues to drupal.org; which 
is good. But it will also mean a lot of duplicate bugs, support issues and 
other (distracting) work.
