This kind of argument just doesn't reflect reality. If it were actually
true, it would be valid. If it were true that we change almost nothing
after a preview release, the point would be significant.

But it's just not true. Did you see the rawhide compose message for
today? It contains three new packages and changes to 50, including basic
components of GNOME and KDE. Tuesday's rawhide featured nine changes to
the *kernel*.

You can't move the goalposts about. If the rule is changing things after
preview is a really significant deal, then there shouldn't be that level
of changes actually happening.
