Are you worried that the final RCs will somehow magically change between
freeze and release?

Yes, I believe it's scheduled for the very end of October, but if it
were *released* in November that would be reflected in the release
numbers.  Note that Dapper was delayed two months, and was thus 6.06
rather than 6.04 (the original planned release month).

The moment of release is largely a synchronization checkpoint and press
event.  Essentially it's no different from "mv rcN.iso released.iso".
And from what I recall, differences between rc ISOs are typically about
the installer.
