It wouldn't necessarily mean that rawhide has to be completely frozen.
We could still have separate stable and updates-testing repos, so that
updates-testing can continue unfrozen during the Alpha and Beta freezes.

The exact same setup as F18 currently has, with Bodhi and separate f18
and f18-updates-testing would still be possible. Just no split between
rawhide and f18.

The hard reality is that branched and rawhide are getting pretty much
the same set of packages currently. It's a very nice view to let
development go ahead in rawhide, and to stabilize branched. But we only
have so many developers and everyone is focusing on branched, leaving
rawhide broken.
