So, I guess the point I was driving at isn't that it's not good to have
a goal for when to have blueprints signed off, but rather that I'm not
sure I've really seen anyone on the release team (you included)
actually say "no" when someone's asked to sign off on targetting a late
blueprint (as long as it's not also past FF).

Given that I could not have a blueprint at all and land a new feature
right up to feature freeze, at least, by the letter of the law, it
seems a bit odd to require people who actually plan to be absolutely
sure of their plans a month or two earlier. ;)
