the mozilla release naming doesn't necessarily follow that concept (and it's certainly not the only one). there have been a lot of changes since 1.4 beta, and at the moment it's a matter of getting wider testing of those changes... I'd agree that it's not really a "release candidate" as such, but they already had a beta, and they've got to call it something... I guess it could be "beta 2" or something... as long as the people working on the code know what's going, I don't think it matters too much
