Yes, yum-cron has been hated by Seth for years, but there was 
still this stubborn community of its users. Actually, when doing 
just mailing about available updates (yum check-update instead 
of yum upgrade -y) it is not that dangerous. Also, I guess on 
server subscribed only to the RHEL proper (which has a bit 
better QA than Fedora) it shouldn't be that bad. In the end many 
of us do yum upgrade -y, right?

Best,
