A first thing would be, IMO, to define when we start counting. I see two
 possible scenarios: either from a certain number of days in advance (30
 days sounds plausible) or from the Release Candidate.

The problem with starting this far out is that we're still not
entirely sure if we're going to slip the release date or not, based
upon the slips that we've had so far in the schedule (we've lost about
2 weeks to slips thus far).  We're trying like hell to release on 4/29
as planned, but there's a (not so) small chance that won't happen.  It
would look fairly bad to "turn back the clock" when/if we slip.

This is why we probably should escalate this to the right level and get an advice (as good as it could be made, we all know delays may happen even in the last week) about the date.

I believe ReleaseEngineering is the proper entity to ask about this, do we have anyone here connected to it?

CC'ing rel-eng.
