While the ethos as defined on the wiki mentions staying close to upstream
and getting the latest software, there's nothing that says that it's done
via updates. I would not categorically state that your reading is the
only valid reading, or even close to the canonical one.

In fact, the wiki implies that this is done via the rapid release cycle,
not updates.
