Several problems with that (at least): 

* Mash has no ability/code to tell when something is a 'security
  update'. It operates on koji tags. So, I suppose we could make a
  f21-security-updates tag for it to operate on, but that would add a
  bunch of complexity to an already complex process and we would have
  to figure out the movement into and out of that tag, etc. 

* Yes, there's a concern about deps. This is also an issue/concern for
  the 'urgent updates' repo.
