After tonight's discussion (and testing on IRC) we have the following 

For QGIS Processing users to use GRASS7, they need to change to Advanced 
mode, then go to Options -> Providers, deactivate GRASS and activate 
GRASS7. We tested a few of the algorithms and seem to work fine.
For the SAGA issue: in Options->Providers, the user has to deselect the 
2.0.8 compatibility check box.

I consider the above not to be a blocker, plus we can add the above info 
in errata page (as we did in 8.0 release)

So, +1 on releasing RC1 as final.
