Is there something that "4 months is enough to get new features in, but
3 months isn't" is based on, or is it more "with 4 releases a year, we
lose 4 weeks to freezing, and 4 weeks to 'not frozen, but there's a
branch to be aware of' while with 3 releases a year, it's one week less
lost to each"?

I mean, I understand that viewpoint, I just want to know if there's a
little more to it than that.
