I'd say that betas *and* RCs should be dropped in favor of a string of 

It's simple, flexible, and reduces the chance of a misunderstanding of the 
reliability of each release.  Each "pre" should be better than the one 
before it, but there is no set cutoff of when it's releasable.  So if KDE 
3.2 is ready after pre4, then fine.  If it's not ready until pre8, then 
nobody got hurt.
