Was this tried in the 2000s, or was it just discussed somewhere? Something to do with harmonising with European timetables IIRC (if I recall/remember/read correctly), alongside with the move of the major change from Sep to Dec. But it meant anywhere with a Summer Saturday timetable ended up having special timetables for the end of May. Not so different from the mini-change that occurs in September now, but at least that isn't a few weeks before a main change.
