No. One can make a good guess, and then update via the software updates
when they know a real figure. If one doesn't use the update service,
then you get the original guestimate.. which should be a reasonable
figure in that circumstance. If you update regularly, then you can get
a real date.. which will also be a reasonable figure in that circumstance.
