That is going to depend a lot on how you manage your environment. If you
are set up to simply download and install any updates then yes you
should give it some thought.

If you are set up with a management entitlement through RHN, you can
choose when to deploy an update. Or if you are simply running yum update
by hand then it is not just going to happen.

It is possible to do excludes in yum, just search for yum excludes.
That might give you all the 6.4 updates minus the IPA updates. However,
I would be wary of this as that may cause some issues as well.

It is also possible to just stay with 6.3, I don't know much about how
this works, but I do know that for some point releases Red Hat continues
to offer support in the form of patches and updates after the next point
release is put out.
