I think you're too focused on the scenario where the same update is
being pushed to all the branches, when that isn't always what is
happening.  It's quite possible that different updates are being pushed,
could be at the same time, could be at different times, and those
updates could be completely unrelated to each other.

Since this is just an informative mailing, I think it's safe to let the
maintainer decide if there is an actual problem or not, just like they
will when they've requested an update that will fix any N-V-R issues,
but it just hasn't been pushed yet.
