Let me turn the question around. Is there any harm in doing this?

Apart from that, yes, I think developers have to be told. Their
curiosity has to be tickled, to avoid that people who aren't really
interested just say "oh, postponing doesn't sound really good, because I
want to release now. Let's not postpone." Having more information is a
good thing; and while I could understand reasoning for not wanting the
full rationales in this mail, I second that the ballot should either
contain those full rationales, or verbosely say it doesn't.
