No, you're right :-)

I'd also encourage Martin to push abiword/gnumeric/mergeant/etc. to
release a set using the same schedule as GNOME 2.12, without blessing
the set as a GNOME set. This would help the community know how they can
handle it.

AFAIK, system startup services stuff is not a new module. It's more like
a new feature. So there's no real need to decide here, except if the
various gnome-session maintainers can't take a decision. But feature
freeze is coming soon ;-)
