If at 9:50am on release morning we discovered that the installer would 
format all connected drives if the month had two digits, I'd like to 
think we'd do something about it. It's inevitably going to be a 
judgement call based on the perceived harm in releasing as is against 
the harm caused by slipping, just as it is at any other point in the 
release process. Current policy effectively says "There is no issue 
sufficient to delay release after we've said an image is good", and I 
don't believe that that's true.
