Certainly anything which is merely fixing unit tests is valid to be merged
pretty much any time. Stuff which touches actual functional code can be
evaluated on a case by case basis to decide whether it is reasonable to
merge at the particular point in the release process we're at. IOW, I see
no reason to arbitrarily block Py3 work on non-prio freeze - we'll just
carry on with it as part of our natural review process - it'll just have
to take back-seat to reviews for priority features.
