+ RC1 is cut a month and a half before release... as usual with .0
there is a longer period between RC1 and release.
+ From a 'profile' point of view this _not_ a major release, so there
is not big 'profile migration'. iow the difference between Beta1 and
RC1 should be minimal
+ The points where we think there _may_ be still some issue that need
actual user-gui testing (like VclPtr) can be tested just as well with
a Beta release.

For these reasons tweaking/reducing the beta-period is not warranted.
