I agree 100%.  Right now the win32 side doesn't qualify for beta...just
the date issue alone is a pretty big deal, IMO.  There are pending
patches for only about 50% of the outstanding issues.   A tremendous
amount of work has been done, but there is still quite a bit to be done
to meet basic QC guidelines.

So I suggest (my choices are of course subjective):
Dividing 
win32 'should fix' (installer, /contrib, etc.) 
win32 'must fix' (psql query cancel, <1970 dates, non-cygwin regression)

Apply freeze date to the 'must fix' items.  'Should fix' items can be
delayed until the beta, dot release, or beyond.  My personal estimation
on completion date depends on what gets put in which category.  If
everything is designated 'must fix', I think July 1 is practical.
