Updating both on the same day would perhaps resolve this.

would reduce confusion and be a bit easier to follow)

Actually I have an example of how this (not updating in parallel) can
If someone is running an EL-5 cobbler server and is using koan on EL-4
(or vice versa) sometimes I need to update them both to reflect an API
change. If both are set to yum update, the client and server can't
talk to each other.
In fact, this is what the user reported on the list, he noticed it after
updating via yum -- he got one and not the other.
