Patches are by their nature impredictable, expecially on systems as
complicated as a modern OS packed full with applications.

In an enterprise environment you absolutely, totally and positively do not
want any patch whatsoever to find its way on your critical systems before
you tested it and perhaps also backed up the system completely just in case
it turns out to be a mess, afterwards.
