Never on Tuesday?

Some data-mining turned up the fact that the new arena season will start on 14 December. Zarhym had previously said that the new season was going to start “approximately a week after the release of Cataclysm”, so everyone is now saying that Cataclysm will be released on 7 December.
I’d like to point out two things:
1. Zarhym said “approximately” one week.
2. While Burning Crusade was released on Tuesday (16 January 2007), Wrath was released on Thursday (13 November 2008), which suggests that there is nothing forcing Blizzard to release expansions during (or around) maintenance.
So, while I applaud the entrepreneurship of data mining the one piece of information and collating it to another, I would think that an estimate of “the week of 6 December” is likely to be more accurate than just “7 December”.
