With 4 weeks for each test cycle that would mean:

January 30 -- Test 2

January 02 is probably to hard to reach, so we should cut one cycle from four to three weeks. Which one? test3 maybe?
If you have to cut a week from one cycle, I'd make it Test1. Test1 is
the most likely to be broken in some unanticipated way, so it would be a
good idea to plan for a (slightly) quicker followup release to that one.

Also, I'd like to have a full 4 weeks after the No-Foolin'
Seriously-Guys This-Is-It Feature Freeze (Test3) to make sure we've got
the kinks worked out.

Does that sound reasonable?

Well, yes and no. I as a outsider got the impression that the freeze after test3 is to long and to much people don't take it serious. *Maybe* it would be better if test3 (or name it rc1?) would really be a hard freeze. Something like "hey guys, test3 is really close to final; get you shit in place by test3, there is not much time left after it to fix stuff."

Well, as I said, that what it looks to me as an outsider.
