I'm thinking about any bug that could be exposed to the user after a
MiKTeX update, whether that comes from MiKTeX itself or if it comes from
MiKTeX updating other packages. If LyX causes an update of a LaTeX
package without asking the user, then my opinion is that LyX would be
responsible for any bug or change in behavior that the package comes
with. That's exactly why I think LyX should not cause such an update
without asking the user.
