That's exactly what I had in mind: I don't expect it to be strict at
all, and not just temporarily, maybe not even ever!  But a chance to
shout out reminders to not release too soon without having to explain
the reasons each and every time is always welcome :)

Yeah, all we'd need is for the (hopefully) minority modules that will
release early to notify us appropriately.  Some maintainers already do
that, but having it as a general guideline (to remind them about it)
is only going to help us organize our work in both translation and
documentation team.

Of course, this is not too big of a problem, but having it there in
the release schedule should make maintainers aware that there is also
a reason not to release too early if they can avoid it.
