In general this sounds good, but I don't think we're in a rush. We could do
the testing in experimental during the beta phase, and transition after the
official release in June. Unlike the 5.3 -> 5.4 , this transition shouldn't
be too painful (famous last words? (: ). I also guess will have to give
some extensions some time to catch up with 5.6 features...
