I think this would be a bad idea. We haven't had any beta releases, nor RC
releases. To jump to a final release strikes me as failure of proper process.

Also leaving 2.6.0-alpha-3 as the last 2.6 release clearly indicates it is a
retired version series. It also leaves it open much better for someone to pick
it up should they so wish.
