Are there any know cases of this happening?  If so, can those be
publicly documented to quantify how much this issue is hurting

We would also need to get a reasonable scoping of the issue (which
projects, how many instances, etc) to help decide if this is an
achievable goal (in the sense of the 'community goals').

As you noted, this will not be easy for Swift or Glance (others?), but
if the impact to deployers can be quantified it makes it easier to
spend energy here.
