Where do you collect and store the information that marks an update as
known bad?

Bugzilla? Where do you want people to report bugs? If you had a fixed window before updates would be picked up on the machines with the more conservative setting people might be more anxious to report them.

But I wouldn't envision marking an update as 'bad' although that's an interesting concept itself. I was thinking that there would be a specified time when all normal updates enter the repository, followed by a time when only critical bug and security fix updates could be added, so towards the end of that interval, packages that hadn't been replaced with 'better' updates would automatically be assumed 'good' and it would be fairly safe to update machines where you want less risk. Then a new cycle of 'new feature' updates could start.
