They might fail to build in some cases that aren't trivial to spot (eg
with some specific makeinfo version; the manuals being prebuilt in
tarfiles doesn't obviate this because many distributions seem to do
bootstrap builds or builds from git tags); or they might cause problems
with the pdf or html version, which isn't frequently checked. And it
creates work for the person making the release, who can't just release
the release candidate, but has to make another one for frankly trivial
reasons. In short, your interpretation of "release candidate" differs
from mine.
