Good points all.  However, I don't think anyone will promise a shipping
date except on special occasions.  More likely, they will tell you a
typical time from order to shipping out (gong into the delivery firm's
hands) and then tell you what UPS or Fedex (or whoever they use) quotes
for shipping times (again, not promises, but "typical" durations).

A promise would be great but probably very expensive in the long run. 
But "typical times" are acceptable to me instead of promises, so long
as "ship" means ship.
