I think when we're talking about this, it's really useful to distinguish /deployment/, which is getting code onto production, from /release/, which is the business decision about what users see and when they see it. Breaking those up does a lot to de-risk CD, because it's not immediately visible to users. Then you have time to test in production and find all the places things can or will go wrong. Or, well, most of them.
