I believe the rationale here was to avoid calling the branch -STABLE
until (at least) the -RELEASE or -RC* came out. But, we do not have
code freezes on head/main or stable branches anymore, so -PRERELEASE is
a marker for "the cycle is in progress, but the releng branch has not
necessarily been created yet."
For 13.0, there will not be a -PRERELEASE.
