I follow the security list and do security updates as required, of
course.  Those rarely (if ever) require full upgrades.  There is no
need to do daily full upgrades just to stay up with security.

I haven't found it so, but then, as I noted, I run neither KDE nor
Gnome.  It appears to me from watching this list that the practice of
blindly upgrading nightly causes far more problems than it solves.
