I was really questioning that the policy didn't say how long the slip is, 
rather than what the amount is. Though my opinion is that it is better 
to always slip a week as the one or two day slips will just encourage 
more of what you are trying to avoid.

I think there is real risk of burn out in the QA volunteers, with not only 
the quick turn around commonly needed for testing right before release, 
but also with the really long blocker meetings leading up to that.
