Some updates would literally sit in testing forever (well, until EOL) if that 
rule is enforced. So I don't think this is a good idea to have as a 
requirement. It could be useful as a "SHOULD" type guideline though (but 
whether independent testing makes sense really depends on what the update is 
supposed to fix).
