I don't think this is a particularly good idea, as I think one or the
other branches will just be ignored.  I think it's better to create
feature-branches during the freeze, for specific works.  However, I
don't think it's a big deal in either direction.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
