I agree that this is just quite hard to achieve. Even when started well 
in time: when the process is slow, and substantial changes are done 
after some time (all the case here, IIRC), you may run in time problems 
too :-\

Plus that maybe working with the feature brought as experimental, 
reduces the (understandable) temptation to release a feature when the 
release date is close, in stead of when it's fine enough.
