I (again) agree with you Sankalp :-)

Why not try something new? 
It's easier to discuss these things more genuinely after trying it out.

One of the differences in the branching approaches: to feature-freeze on a 4.0 branch or on trunk; is who it is that has to then merge and work with multiple branches. 

Where that small but additional effort is placed I think becomes a signal to what the community values most: new features or stability. 

I think most folk would vote for stability, so why not give this approach a go and to learn from it.
It also creates an incentive to make the feature-freeze period as short as possible, moving us towards an eventual goal of not needing to feature-freeze at all. 

regards,
Mick
