Is there a point in the development timeline when non-working features should be disabled in order to (temporarily) resolve non-critical bugs?

I'm thinking of the Save with media to zip archive feature ( ), but perhaps there are others. My feeling is that removing such things is a good way to improve the 'fit-and-finish' of the release...
