of the machine, one can then easily put it back to the stable state that
existed at build time, updating only activities that had changed from os
build to final release.  As such, in a perfect world, this would indeed
show no updates.

One can easily then update whichever specific activities are wanted to be
updated to versions subsequent to that stable build by going to ASLO.  For
example, there may exist many updated applications in ASLO that will not
run on older versions of Sugar, and to auto-update them via this may then
introduce the same instabilities that caused a restore in the first place:-)

Just my theory.  I do not speak for the designers/developers.
