Freezing a week before was still appropriate in the days where the
release team had to spend Fri, Mon, and Tue to fix uninstallable
packages, component mismatches, and grave installer bugs. Now that we
have these mostly covered by our CI testing, my feeling is that
freezing on Monday or even Tuesday should be fine. We should still
test the previous Friday's daily manually to verify that we didn't get
any installer bugs that aren't covered by the automatic tests, of
course, but I don't see a need to freeze at the same point any more.
