despite the fact that fedora is primarily aimed at people with some
knowledge of linux and therefore ease-of-use isn't very high on the
priority-list (is it?), it would nevertheless imo be a good idea to
seperate the security-relevant updates from the normal ones, either in
the headline (f.e. "fedora security-update") or by including a line
under "name" (like "security-relevant" yes/no). 
this of course just for the final (not "test"-) updates.

if so, this would ease the use and burden of administration of fedora on
pcs of normal users (family, friends etc.) enormously, because they
could (after a short instruction and subscription to
fedora-announce-list) install the security-fixes themselves. 
of course, the next step would be at least an option that up2date would
install those security-updates automatically (because there's imo no
good reason speaking against it).
