Yeah, agreed. Using R-15 or R-14 weeks could be nice for non-prioritary 
specs that could be reviewed in a sprint before the FeatureFreeze for them.

Using the R-11 week means that we would already hit the non-prio FF, but 
that also means that we could use that sprint time for reviewing the 
priorities like we did previously (and which worked great).

So, I'm not sold about which week we should prefer, just commenting 
about what we could discuss during that midcycle.

Just rephrasing what you said in IRC, we expect to have around 40 people 
for 3 days, in case people wonder whether they can support us.
