Mmm, but an apt-get upgrade does have its inconvenience also.

What would be nice is to have a apt-get full-upgrade or whatever, which
would add additional packages but not remove any existing package like
dist-upgrade does.

Often it is needed, after an apt-get upgrade, to hand install many
package that apt-get upgrade didn't consider for installation.
