I preferred the way it was done the first time. Based on a stable milestone so that I KNEW what to expect at a minimum, and what I could compare it against to look for improvements and deficiencies. A benchmark if you will. If you take a build, and then try to time a NS Beta to go public the same time as a milestone, then the NS Beta will have something the Moz Milestone doesn't, and vice versa, thus nothing to compare it to to gauge Netscape's internal progress against.

Bluntly, I'm more likely to stick with the Mozilla milestone than Netscape PR2 if they're released simultaneously without being code-concurrent (aside form Netscape's additions, mind you). These betas should be Milestone X plus Netscape features.
