Looking at the trending from Thorsten's list:

FC1 -- 5 November 2003  - General Availability
FC2 -- 18 May 2004 - General Availability
FC3 -- 8 November 2004 - General Availability
FC4 -- 13 June 2005 - General Availability
FC5 -- 20 March 2006 - General Availability
FC6 -- 24 October 2006 - General Availability

The nine months for FC5 brought the schedule back into the
late-March/late-October flow again.  If this is important, I think we
all have some possibility of influencing that this stays this way; and I
think some influence may already be applied.  What I see Thorsten saying
is, let's keep applying that influence from the community and from Red
Hat to keep aligned with i) a schedule that others can predict more than
five months in advance, and ii) a schedule lined up with at least one
major component (GNOME).  

Seems reasonable to me.  We can do that _and_ remain flexible -- it's
better to make up your mind and change it later than to never make it up
at all ... or make it up and refuse to budge from a bad decision. ;-D
