 Then an upgrade will require manual intervention, right?

 Good point!  This has to be addressed.  One (inflexible) way to
fix this would be to lock the customisation package to one exact
version of the source package.  Then an upgrade of the source
package would trigger an upgrade of the customiser.

 How large portion of the eZ publish package can realistically
be read-only?  Auto-upgrading files that are modified by users
and admins is fraught with problems.

 Most security issues are likely to occur in php.  Then some
in the configuration, and little in the data entered by the
user/admin. (considering exploitation risk)
