I think that locked-step changes should be done as simultaneously as possible.  We should try not to merge proto updates that cause the server to stop building (as was the case with randr for a while) until both sets are reviewed and can be pushed together.  The same goes for tagged releases.  I think we should've pushed rc tags of extproto and randrproto to coincide with the server rcs. This would allow someone to build the rc server entirely from tarballs which might allow for more exposure.
