When I update my system, the propose is to use the new version (security
fix, ...). Perhaps it's better to schedule an update at midnight than
when there is a rush of connection. It's up to the administrator to
decide when and how to update his system.
If daemons are not restarted when I update a system then when this
append ?
Do you ask me to always reboot my computer after "yum update" ? Too bad.
Suppose I update httpd and httpd is not restarted. One week later the
server is restarted (power failure), the new httpd does not start and
"bad luck" I am in holidays...

What do you think about this scenario ?

btw, "service httpd reload" (or condreload) is not enough alter an
update ?
