Not necessarily. It's 'un-broken' if your goal is ease of configuration.
I agree that if the goal is ultimate performance for updates, then selective

today's hardware delivers performance far in excess of what's required.
Sometimes sacrificing performance in the interests of ease of use is a 
good idea.
