But you also don't get potentially critical security updates until the
full release. That is, yum update won't give you anything.

What stability problems would you expect from updates beyond a point
release? The whole point of an 'enterprise' distribution is the
effort they make to not break api's across a whole major-rev's life.
Would an upstream system break if you selectively update packages
beyond a point release without doing a full update?

That's ummm, strange. Wouldn't you be running that kernel even if the
whole release had been completed?
