Well, like I said, unless you need the fermenter, just leave it there. It certainly doesn't hurt it to not bottle it. Batch aging is good for mead. And there's less exposure to oxygen if you keep it in the fermenter.
Another month or 3 or 6...it won't be any good until at least a year so why rush to get it into bottles that you don't want to open anyway? I've had meads in secondaries for 6 months or more. No harm in it. Unless you need the fermenter.
In other words, wait as long as you can stand it.
