Thanks Rodolfo,  I have to agree with that.  
And your view on PR and professionalism is right on the mark.

However, my comment about planning for things to happen that hinge on a 
projected future event still stands.  Those who are planning based on 
the date the event (release) is projected should always allow some time 
for possible slippage of things that are not in their control.  That is 
professionalism at its best.  Under promise & over deliver.  Thus you 
are not left at the mercy of someone else's failures.
