This has been discussed before and I’m not sure the IPMC has the bandwidth for this. Most
releases go through a couple RCs, sometime that can be more. This would be asking the IPMC
to potentially review 3x-5x the number of releases than it normally done.

How does fit with the requirement that 3 +1 PMC votes needed for a release? Or is it doing
away with it?
