No.  We tried that in the past and we ended up extending it in pieces
several times. The effect was that we delayed feature freeze by a month
or two, and other features never got developed in that timeframe.  I
remember SMP fixes for 7.3 as causing that problem.  We didn't do that
for 7.4 and it was better.
