Everything except what Canonical develops in private. The significance of fewer test releases seems to be that Canonical will probably drop in their "ta-da" components around the first pre-release, which will now be the *only* pre-release.
> the fact that they want to add a 'ta da' moment at the end and as such will be developing a small number of things separately and adding them at the end really shouldn't be that big a deal, you can just ignore these new things if you want.
I don't believe that. This decision to develop some things in private is clearly motivated by the long, lukewarm reception of Unity through its early iterations -- and I don't blame them for not wanting a repeat. But, when a distro changes something at that level, it's not just an issue of ignoring it.
