No. The issue is that in the past sometimes security updates have been
rushed out with no testing and broken things badly. ;( 

For some small number of examples (yes, anyone is welcome to please add
others you have run into to the page). 

I know of at least dbus, bind, nss and a few others that were security
updates and pushe out with no testing and turned out to break things. 

Perhaps security updates could have a smaller timeout? 
Or a security group that tests them ?
