Erm... No!  I can accept that point releases contain all security 
updates since the previous point release, but you certainly don't 
have to wait until then.  Security updates are released as soon as 
they are available.  Provided that one has the security repositories 
in one's sources.list, security updates will be downloaded, and 
installed as soon as one does an upgrade.  ("One" is very clumsy in 
English, but in this case I felt that the second person would appear 
to target Zenaan.)
