Maybe a bit bit off topic WRT $Subject, sorry if it is the case.

Of course having fixes available sooner is valuable, but you have to weigh
that against the cost of releasing a *botched* update. The advantage of
batched updates is we reduce the risk of releasing botched updates. If we
batch the updates together and release them all at once, possibly with new
installation media, then that's something that we can QA, and that reduces the
risk of a botched update.
Not always, unless we have https://fedorahosted.org/bodhi/ticket/663
first. Packages which depend like:
A -> concrete_version_of(B) -> concrete_version_of(C)
.. are now updated in "batches". People interested in 'C' give karma to
but also approve 'A' and 'B' (without paying attention to test those
independently). But breaking 'A' or 'B' breaks stable release anyway.
batched update _increases_ the risk of a "botched" update.
