I don't really see how Mark Shuttleworth has influence on that (other than 
stating the obvious, that distros would like us to have time-based releases).

The communication strategy would be rather simple:

- We're moving *back* to time-based releases
- We'll be releasing once every six months, starting in July
- The next release will contains X, Y and Z

- It supports our development model and cycle
- It makes us more predictable for our partners ('own people', downstream, 

Very roughly, of course.
