I am afraid your thinking is somewhat simplistic. DxO is a small commercial company with only about 130 employees and most of their business is in designing circuitry for telephone cameras and building testing equipment. There are probably not more than about a dozen people doing testing for DxO modules and development of the DxO software. For every module about 1000 measurements are needed, and I don't know, whether they test multiple copies for each lens. Just for Nikon there are 11 current DSLR cameras plus about 80 lenses. However, there are many other DSLR manufacturers and DxO has tested about 185 cameras and produced a total of over 6000 modules.

They have to react very quickly to changes of the market, otherwise they would go under. When they project a date for developing a module, this has to be very tentative. After all, they made a number of new modules for the D800 shortly after its release as you yourself have found out This was certainly much smarter than having used their limited resources to adhere to a tentative timetable.
