Sounds like a good idea. At the minimum the image should ask (how?) the
user if they want to enable automatic updates. I've seen many admins who
don't even know about the unattended-upgrades package so we should be
advertising it more.

On my virtual machines I usually configure automatic updates and
automatic reboot daily or weekly to ensure that I don't have any
run-time configuration that would be break after e.g. a power outage.
