Indeed so.  Also it is surely the case the for the majority of updates on a day
to day basis the largest fraction of the time needed to complete the updates is 
likely to the downloading the update rpms. 

Therefore making sure the downloads come from a fast mirror is the most important
factor in getting the overall elapsed time to be as short as possible.

Once the rpms are all in the cache area then the update install is usually quite
quick.
