I thought about this as well, but:

- Mandriva says July would be perfect (they're shipping KDE by default, so 
  they're pretty important)
- It would just miss the coming openSUSE release, but align pretty well with 
  their follow-ups (if I understand coolo correctly)
- It's before Ubuntu's feature freeze (which is, I think in August, and aligns 
  well in the future due to the same rhythm)
- We'll be missing Debian Lenny in any case (even with 4.0).

I didn't really find out how other distros release exactly (more input data 
welcome!). I find the above pretty good arguments for July, and not later. 
(Also considering that we don't want to wait too long with 4.1.)
