... we really shouldn't shove in major changes like this for a
significant chunk of hardware post-beta.  Putting it in the beta means
that we get a relatively large chunk of testing done due to the
visibility surrounding the beta announce.  As well as having time to fix
large problems that are uncovered.  Later milestones both a) lack the
time for changes after them and b) the visibility.

Yeah, I've seen intel's "mature" code before.  Excuse me if this is
anything but reassuring.
