I woke up thinking about this same point.
It is just plain too late to make this sort of change to branches/release.
We are about to close the release to everything except emergency bug fixes,
and this clearly doesn't qualify as that.
In thinking more about the effect on merging with trunk, I think that is OK
(subject to caveats discussed in other messages) once I've done the missing
merges analysis. That is already overdue; I'll try to get it done in the
next few days.
