Sure, that's why an application container would allow for application
specific repositories (a.k.a. stores) where apps can reviewed as apps
instead of system-wide swappable components.

Then you can have a policy that is more suitable to apps with a
different cadence than the system-wide (rpm/deb/...) repository, in fact
you may not need a cadence at all.

It is outrageous that it's 2013 and I still have to upgrade my whole
system just to get the latest LibreOffice version to name an example.
