So we simply do what we did for previous releases but each release will 
require multiple votes to define increasing quality levels, right? This 
way we don't require the quality to be FC at the first call.

Makes sense.

We did something similar with jSPF. it was 0.9.4 unstable, 0.9.5 
unstable, 0.9.6 was stable so we had 0.9.6 declared as stable in the 

So first we tag and release and then we decide what "quality label" to 
use to describe that release using a vote for each "quality step".

I will not be Anne (because Anne is a girl ;-) ), but I would be happy 
to test/fix during #3 and to write my votes in #1,#2,#5,#6 and #7.

IMHO #1 answer is an implicit YES for every source tree not having had a 
release in the last year.

The only thing I don't like of this approach is that if we tag before we 
decide the quality level we cannot include the quality label in the 
release file name (and artifacts deployed to the maven repository), but 
maybe this "missing information" worth the advantages of having a much 
easier entry level for releasing something.
