It is what we started doing for PHP as well. Very regular releases, with 
exceptions for "security releases". It's been a great success.

Everybody around the ecosystem knows when releases are coming, and it is 
easy to communicate that if you want your change/fix/feature in a new 
release, it needs to be done by x date.

I think this would be hugely beneficial for the tz project too - it can 
also be used as a stick to communicate to organisations that *change* 
the rules, that this is when their computers are getting updated.
