Because it impacts other, non-Apple customers.  Or, it costs the ISP more
(passed through to all customers) to add capacity to handle an infrequent peak

Question/suggestion:  Could Apple perhaps shift their release to a Saturday
morning?  I would think that this would go a long way to diluting the peak.
