Freezes is there to be broken, when necessary, i think it has to be discussed 
on a case per case basis.

> 4) When is the string freeze?

If we have a feature freeze, string freeze should be the same date, what's the 
meaning of adding new strings if you can't add new features?

> 5)  Should language bindings be part of the development platform?

If Richard says he can do it, i say we can try it :-)
