I've used the content freeze successfully in the past. It works
like this:

1. Well in advance, notify everyone you are imposing a content
freeze say, 48 hours (or whatever) before ship date. Inform them
that changes after your freeze are candidates for the release

2. When your freeze starts, take your doc offsite for final
formatting and editing. Tell everyone to email you their
last-minute content.

3. Return just before the deadline and inform everyone the doc
is finished. Check your email and start working on the release

Of course, if you feel you can't get away with this, then you
can always wimp out on your freeze and go back to the old way of
accepting changes up to the deadline (I've done that, too).
