Ok, I did misunderstand a bit, but also you didn't answer my main question.
I'll just ask it again, hope it's ok:

Why not do this:
  Accept the patches into trunk, and do the "code freeze" in a branch.

 - Developers of patches will not get pissed (ahem) for their stuff
not getting in.
 - Development doesn't stop just every time a release is coming up.
 - Developers can actively select whether they'd like to help with the
release (switch to '0.9-rc' branch) or do a little more crazy stuff
(switch to trunk).
 - Only sane patches get accepted to the RC by picking and merging
those that are approved some way or another.
 - Patches don't get "LOST" as you call it..

 - Can't think of any?
