My gut feeling tells me that keeping the final codename unknown until
nearly release time also marginally helps delineate laypress "reviews"
of test releases from "reviews" of final releases.  If the codename
was set early in the testing phase..or even before it.. we would
undoubtedly see "articles" using the codename in association with a
test release in a manner which would lead to audience confusion.  I
get a special sort of warm feeling when people stumble into test2 era
reviews, post release day, and assume they are still relevant. It's
such a special feeling that I'd hate to cheapen its specialness by
doing anything that would make it mundane and common.
