Think "Aunt Tillie". She's got one PC, not several. She just wants it to be safe from the baddies on the intraweb. QA of an update at a time, with individual QA of each dependency, is not something she is going to do. The simple desktop use case is to turn on automated nightly updates, and to let power users and sysadmins turn those off at their own risk. "Partial" automated updates do make sense for this scenario.
