Regardless of what is shipped, it will receive updates and people will
dist-upgrade to the next update.

.3 vs .4 on the installation media makes no difference to the offline
installation, or the livecd experience, doesn't it?

One must have internet connectivity to subsequently receive updates,
and eventually, any mesa we ship on the point release media will be
out of date, and will be updated by users on the installed systems.
This is irrelevant for delaying or respinning point release media
over. The benefit of "latest point release" will literally decay
within a very short time.
