In CentOS or Debian I can afford to reboot for every update. With
Fedora's rapid stream of updates that's simply not workable.
Then just don't apply every update. There's no law that says you have
to...if there's a pending security update you get a different and more
urgent notification, btw.

In a VT I'll often be unable to review the list of updates before
hitting Y, as I'll only see the end of the list.
You can look at the list from a desktop terminal but actually run the
transaction from the VT, or you can run inside screen or tmux and use
their scrollback features...
