I can't speak for the Foundation, but I would think it would be good to
have an official PTG in the middle of the cycle (perhaps neatly aligned
with some kind of milestone/event) that lets people discuss plans for
finishing off the release, and early work they want to get started on for
the subsequent release). The problem with team-organised midcycles (as I'm
sure everyone remembers), is that there's little/no opportunity for
cross-project work.
