"Shouldn't matter", yet every company that uses the CVE data set to 
generate statistics rely on that to count by year, even if the 
vulnerability was disclosed a year prior to the ID (e.g. disclosed in 
2015, received a 2016 ID).

This is a simple fact, and a majority of the 'statistics' we see 
surrounding vulnerabilities are impacted by this.
