Dealing dates flexible as a gymnast

"We sometimes use the ATO pothole, and sometimes even try viewing the 'client dealings' when we're waiting excitedly for an ATO response to a client matter.
Recently, it seems that whenever we're nearing an 'estimated date of completion', the estimated date automagically moves forward another 6 weeks.
Could I ask the ATO what is the point of these amazingly flexible dates, and whether they have any policy (or 80% target) for meeting originally estimated dates?
We always look forward to TAXVINE on Fridays. Do you have a break over Xmas too?"
