Of course, those organizations aren't stuck with just released
versions of tzdata, either.  The countervailing argument is that, for
people who are distributing content derived from tzdata, it would be
helpful to batch up changes so that they need not run through their
release/QA cycles multiple times for changes that will affect only a
small number of customers.
