I think the key word here is "bug-gers." Isn't the decision to ship a
processor as marketable product more or less arbitrary? Every
processor comes out with bugs that are "fixed" with errata. So the
decision-maker consults some oracle to decide when the unknown mix of
risks presented by a new processor can be guessed at as being small
enough to justify keeping marketing department claims as credible.
Who, other than a handful of executives with desks the size of pool
tables, could possibly have any insight into that process?

Robert.
