In case you'd "hit" the freeze without noticing (although I expect people do
read mail and pay attention on announcements of such importancy), pre-commit
check would have caught it for you.  No need to make wild guesses.

As for rationale against abusing it outside a slush, please see my email on
port-committers@ from 27 Feb, msgid <20120227070603.GA86372 at>.
Just couple of weeks ago, not sure why you didn't see it.

In short, while there are no *technical* problems with this tag, it's
confusing to see it outside feature freeze, which also kinda makes entire
idea behind it vague.
