That's correct. We accept that that's an outstanding significant issue, and
the site should not be launched without it. What I'm saying here is "When
that's sorted, and caching turned on, we'll launch." (Neglecting for a
moment Jeff's ultimatum)

There are also outstanding issues of lesser importance, and numerous
additional features we'd like, but I'm essentially proposing that - as per
the issue classification definitions the dev team have been using - these
are not release critical. No-one has raised any release critical bugs
lately, so we do not anticipate any further ones arising. (IMO, the
visibility of having these bugs still current at launch will get them fixed
faster than waiting for them to be done pre-launch).
