While I like date-based myself it has an awkward complication.
We don't know precisely when the next version of Linux will be released, so we don't know what it's name will be, so we cannot give meaningful names to the -rc releases that precede it.
I guess we could just decide that the next release will be 11.07 and if slips through to an August release date, we don't worry about it.
Or we could aim for early July, but call it 11.08.. then it is will probably be released early and we will look like we are very efficient.
