That's the point here, yes. We've had this discussion already several
times, and it was triggered by needs/desires of cloud providers. As a
*default*, it makes sense to have automated security updates to cover
the users who don't care, or don't know any better. Users with more
knowledge and hard requirements about downtime etc. should already be
managing this.
