I'm entirely with the 'it's no problem' camp, here.

To answer the question someone posed earlier in the thread, when I was
doing a lot of testing of various F13 RC2 installs yesterday, none of
them - not the default desktop install from DVD, the desktop spin, the
KDE spin or the Xfce spin - had more than 12 updates available. I don't
recall the exact size of the available update sets, but they were around
10-20MB I think.
