[CentOS] CentOS 6.3 packages updates options without upgrading.

The specs may have certain dependency on subset of 6.3 packages, but not
for all other packages/binaries, as I mentioned earlier.  So, to keep
things rather intact, we would simply meet requirements by only updating
"selected packages only".  And, for now, that should be considered
intermittent solution until we can safely land to a proper job as you
mentioned.  So, would there be any issue by upgrading "selected only
packages" temporarily?  For example, only updating nss-util or openssl to
6.8 version.  Thanks all, appreciated very much.
