Are you sure about that? I could have sworn that MS categorizes
updates into shades  and delibrately holds back some available updates
where are non-critical(non-security) from the automatic process.

They have high-priority updates and optional updates.

High priority updates get installed by automatic updates, optional have to updated by hand from windows update.

most security fixes are High-Priority

No major upgrades are, ie the new version of windows media player or the .net framework won't be updated automatically.

Of course there are also service packs in the mix, which are forced upgrades at some point since new security fixes are only available if you install them.
