Sure we could. We would need to: 

* Have some way to freeze things so we could stablize for the release. 
* Anaconda team willing to work on updated release + next release at
  the same time. 
* releng folks avilable to compose stuff. 
* QA folks available to run through all the release tests. 
* Mirrors willing to have another pile of release bits
* Marketing/press folks willing to put together stuff for the release
* Docs willing to update any release notes, etc. 
* Any additional tooling needed if we call this 19.1 or something. 

So, all this is doable, it's just a lot of resources to try and move
around, so personally I would only be willing to go down this road if
it was something really really really severe, and it would need buy in
from stakeholders.
