There's already a week between initial tarball creation (for packagers) 
and official release.  Are you proposing making this longer? or... some 
other workflow?

2 additional comments:
* I think it may be unwise to conflate release engineering with QA, they 
really are 2 distinct items (though obviously interelated).
* I'm also of a mind there's no special need for additional bugzilla 
components... in the past, when/if regressions or blockers identified in 
our "week", they were dealt-with appropriately.
