If a project is creating 400 discrete "releases", this sounds to me
like an umbrella project.  Consider the ability to "announce" that
a new release has occurred, and the frequency with which those would
be broadcast.

There's nothing wrong with a release model which provides for updated
components within a much larger project, on a faster release cycle,
but clear documentation of which have been updated and which components
are still at their older revision that was previously approved.
