Ah, right. Sorry for my confusion.
So, yes, your theory really is a good one, although it is surprising
that months later the update ping count did not return to its older
value, e.g., the March counts are significantly higher than August ones.
Maybe our usage is dropping.
If we think the restart delay is a bad thing, we could be more
aggressive about encouraging people to restart and apply updates.
