Come on, provide real reasons why this shouldn't be done.

Well one comparison here is perhaps fsck which has a -y option which means
"go do it whatever" but also has a "-a" option meaning "don't ask me unless
its something scary or destructive"

in the fsck world defining 'scary and destructive' is probably easier than in pkg mgmt.

Not the least of which is 'updating glibc' scary and destructive? what about removing an old kernel?
