The problem here is that packages get multiple updates.  Lets say update
1 is non security.  Update 2 is security.  Updates 3 and 4 are non
security.  User Bob does a fresh install, and in order to get the
security update, he has to update to update 4, which has 3 non security
updates rolled into it.  He might as well just update everything.
