So you are floating the entire thing.  I am tired of discussing this. 
You call the freeze and when it is a disaster, you can take the credit.

I am not worrying about any freeze date anymore.  You freeze whenever
you want to.

Floating a freeze data has always been a failure.  Let's watch it happen
