I would assume you could just change the updateinfo for the the current
update to mark it as "security", this is a tiny amount of extra work on
the packager side ... but without it all the work to create the security
types on updates is worthless.

This would be the _only_ failure point, if in fact it is policy (and
isn't going to be fixed). Of course it's such a huge issue I'll have to
make the --security option a noop in Fedora if true, no arguments there
the option would be worthless.
