It seems like a reasonable thing. If we do point releases frequently then
an APT configuration would look like: 

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stable updates

Now, once the security update has been properly installed in the main
archive APT will automatically use it, till then it is available from the
security site. If someone has proposed-updates in their list then the same
thing happens.
