FWIW, I agree.
In fact, it took some time to understand our current model becasue I had my
mind setup with release-THEN-branch.
I just couldn't get into the idea of working on something else than a
release (once the release is sheduled). Even in my own projects, I never
move past a release without finishing it first; so I couldn't understood why
was there an early branch. As Peter, I just have to _always_ propagate my
work into the Release branch simply becasue I wouldn't be working on
anything but the release until it's finish.
In the odd event that I have something terribly hot that I can't wait to
commit for a post-release version, I would just keep it in my disk.

Just my 2c
