Instead, we take what is stable at the time (pushing a release if absolutely necessary to integrate well) and then cut the bundle. But, to be honest, we're still in the process of establishing a strategy ;)

Sure, and this is actually also what eclipse "simultaneous release" means - some projects release several times, some only at that time; but all are keeping an eye on that 1 a year big release and additional 2 bugfix releases to make sure their stuff gets done for it. in other words - without a planned "big" release nothing would actually work together ;)

We'd find your team's experience and advice from working with the Eclipse simultaneous release process a valuable resource, when the time comes for us. No doubt, we are the newbies in this realm ;)
