 The timing could really be improved a lot though.

I do however have a concern that RC images really aren't being treated as
"Candidates" for gold.  People are planning uploads to main as though they
can still rely on another image spin for final.

According to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReleaseCandidate
"and will only be allowed for very high-priority showstopper bugs that might
justify delaying the release"

I don't get the impression that a lot of the uploads happening after RC was
spun would realistically hit that criteria listed above.
