Nuclear guesswork

This graphic appears on the BBC news website to illustrate the story about Gordon Brown's cost-cutting plan to reduce the UK's number of nuclear subs from four to three.
The illlustration is supposed to show who has got how many nuclear warheads but admirably states this caveat: All numbers are estimates because exact numbers are top secret.
So what's the point of guessing how many each country has got? It's utterly meaningless.
