If we suppose people know they can use preupgrade since Beta, I wouldn't want to release Beta and say "we'll fix it later". Because in the meantime a lot of people would end up with broken system. Let's not do respins, but let's require a working anaconda (and preupgrade and all the other parts) are in stable updates before we say "Beta is GOLD".
