How would we handle this scenario:

I user has 6.3 installed, they have never updated.  We are on 6.5.

Package abc-1.2.3 is installed on their machine, it is on the 6.3 iso
that they installed from.

Package abc-1.2.4 is a security update and in 6.4.

Package abc-1.2.5 is a bugfix only update in 6.5.

The guy says .. yum update security only.

The info in the xml file says abc-1.2.4 is the right package, but it is
not installable from 6.5 .. what happens?
