This just does not scale for large update groups such as the KDE SC updates.

I think it would also acerbate the already existing "How do I provide 
feedback for a library?" problem (because now it'd also affect libraries 
included in update groups, not just those filed separately).

I don't understand why we need to make up more and more complicated rules 
for updates rather than just killing the whole karma and autokarma business 
and having the maintainer READ the update feedback and make an informed (and 
unhindered by bureaucracy) decision based on that.
