You seem to wrongly assume that "time-based" means the actual release date and 
therefore no more beta/RC releases if there are too many errors? Then you're 
wrong. I mean the date of the feature freeze: Add only the features/programs
which are ready at a given feature freeze date (that's like the last releases
were managed). "Feature based" in opposite would mean to define the features
that have to be in and then delay (endlessly) the freeze until all are there.
