This seems like a bad approach given how that we currently have interest 
and opportunity in the roll-over that could catalyze planning for a 
second roll.  This does not - and should not - need to be single 
threaded.    AFAICT, you're going to know most everything you need to 
know a few seconds to a few days after you stop signing the the old key.

So - I suggest you pick a date now.  Start planning for the next roll 
now.  If your post analysis shows a problem - adapt and overcome and 
adjust the dates if you need to.  It's hard to hit a target if you don't 
put it on calendar.

Later, Mike
