Freebsd-update and release candidates

I'm in the process of setting up a small network of FreeBSD
installations. My plan (this time) is to keep them on branches available
to freebsd-update, instead of depending on source being checked out from

However, I'm a wee bit curious of whether I will be able to upgrade from
8.2RC3 or if I should wait until 8.2 is actually released with the setup
(I _CAN_ wait a week or two).

Any insight would be appreciated.
