It's all relative - a couple of days is plenty of time to get feedback from the forum regulars who use nightly builds, and a few extra people that might have been sticking with a nightly build from the previous weeks. I don't think it was intended to be something that got wide distribution. Thunderbird is only at 0.6 - 0.5 was out less than 2 months ago, and 0.7 isn't too far into the future. If you're pushing milestones of pre-beta software every 4-6 weeks, there isn't really time for a long "release candidate" period before each one.
