That is not a good idea. Public Betas are extremely visible. That would
change the established concept that only RC builds replace the previous
stable version. 
In this specific case (major version change) maybe it would make sense to
create some "Private" Betas available for QA people only (available at the
dev-builds server and not mirrored) which do behave as a release build...

Yes. I can see you your point. It is not a priority.
Maybe leave this for a GSOC student? :)

See my comment above about "Private" Betas. That could be tested as well.
