Agreed - they are of little use or value when jumps like that occur.... and no visibility into when the rankings will be out. They have been released in October/November in the past.
At this point, it is going to be pointless to release them since they won't have much impact on people's choices (there is a big assumption here that said that actually could impact if released earlier).
