You are right we will need to freeze at some point, but actually the 
way we have both approved and proposed tests makes me less worried 
about this -- However, we should freeze things relatively soon in the 
sense that any tests not approved by then cannot guaranteed to be 
approved (i.e. at whatever time thereafter we decide to move to PR, 
we simply declare only the tests approved at that time as approved)
  I think that would keep us in good shape, but we could keep moving 
until the last minute...
