Where did we promise anything beyond *hopefully* having it?

We've been in freeze for a week. We're approaching the branch after
which nothing is supposed to be changed unless it can't be avoided. It
needs to basically be in a "final" state before the branch, we shouldn't
plan to change things after it.

The branch should basically be looked at as "the release date" with
things only changed if we completely missed something. Applying patches
and leaving a feature on during the branch, to disable it right before
the end, is a DEFINITE no-do. It completely flies in the face of why we
do things in this order. That's the sort of thing that could've happened
during the freeze, possibly, but not the branch.
