Because often the work of a feature needs more time than the short 3
months we've seen before between N release and N+1 feature freeze.  And
often times the features are done or near done by the time FESCo votes
on them, starting early is a good thing.

Yes, that may be true.  It is unfortunate that you'll now have to do a
buildroot override task, but that was a negative impact we were willing
to take.  As I said in other mails, if you're seeing a long lag in tag
requests, we can try to grow the list of folks with tag rights to cover
other time zones.  Use of koji wait-repo can help here, and nearly
replicate chain-build.
