As an alternative, they could both improve the TIM and get their clockspeed bump from Kaby, and end up with a more measurable improvement over Skylake. If anything, now would be the time to do it; when you don't have much to hang your hat on for selling the new lineup.

99% of the CPUs they sell will be run at stock clocks. As long as they stay within their operating temperature range at stock clocks, even sloppily applied TIM is "good enough", and making sure it gets done right raises production costs without generating any additional revenue.

Need to get a vice and the TIMs though...

I've done a G3258 and a 4770K so far (in addition to a bunch of Athlon64 and Opterons back in the day) but I've always re-installed the IHS on Intel chips. A coat of Coollab Liquid Ultra between the die an the IHS, plus a very small dab of sealant at the corners to keep the IHS in place. Placed wet into a socket to compress and dry.
