The same argument can be made with Books 26-28 in place of Books 8-12. 
We can easily make another release of Books 1-3 if we spot such an odd 
issue in later books. I prefer "Release early, release often." over 
"Release when everything is perfect."

Does this really make sense? Who would want to download only one sub-
series? Has anybody ever made such a request? If not, then I don't think 
it's worth the effort.

The chances are good.
