There is no or little difference between what we call major and minor.
So I suggest to treat them the same.

Then as for when to have a bug hunt session, I think the goal is to get
_many_ people test early. Therefore I would suggest to do it _early_
with beta1 or beta2.
The l10n teams can ask people in their community to test the RC1 or RC2
on l10n issues, so that those can be fixed in RC3.
