Only that with fixed point releases you set aside a day or so to
download, burn, transport and load.  You wouldn't want to be doing that
daily on the off chance that something relevant has been added.  Horses
for courses, the problem won't affect most people as Nataraj said.

I really don't get your point.  How is that worse than an update repo,
or even a full 6.1 release.  In both cases you're forced to get it past
your firewall by some method, even if that is sneakernet.
