We already tag updates as either security, bugfix, or enhancement.
yum-security would only install the security ones.  However what was
yesterday's security update can become today's enhancement update, so
you'd have to consume the enhancement in order to get the security fix.
Likewise tomorrow's security fix may be built against yesterday's
enhancement for something else, so in order to get the security for A
you have to get the enhancement for B.
