Hanno already outlined the goals, I'd say go with those.

I'd nominate the incumbent 3.x team for this; this team already has
the mindset to get this going; the future plone team (trunk team?) is
focusing on vision right now, which I think may not be what's needed
for an in-between team.

I'd still go for a 4.0 number here; anything in the 3.x range would
add confusion about stability, a promise I wouldn't be willing to
