Sounds reasonable.

I'm not sure if #12804 is bug which should block 4.6.6. Anyway I can
not reproduce the problem on normal tables, however I get error with
some specially named (which were causing XSS in past). But that was
probably broken since the designer has been introduced...

That's true, let's ship it out to get more testing :-). Honestly there
will be quite some javascript issues and if there will be too many, we
might rollback to jQuery 2.x.

Sounds good.

I don't see strong reason for 5.0.0, also the number 4.7 still looks
reasonable, we simply might go to 5.0 after 4.9 ;-).
