4.0.4 supposely fixes a lot of compatibility problems with applications. Prior versions of Android use another kernel, therefore some of the programs need amended for the newer kernel; essentially they moved from 2.6.x to 3.0.x which means some arcitecture differences with power saving, processor usage, memory, hardware capabilities etc.
One of the main fixes was the battery drain issue and handsets not sleeping properly. There's many under the hood fixes and that's just from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4. 4.0.5 will probably be released around the time of the Galaxy S III release if this new found development cycle from Google is anything to go by.

4.0.4 has been more less ready since about March, whereas 4.0.3 has been held back from around Feburary. It's all to do with the development cycle and not everyone has a device capable of running ICS.
Which you think they would be able to get it out quicker although it's all up to the Samsung and Google at the end of the day.
