This isn't new
"But let's think about how this would play out at the enterprise scale: Stuff doesn't work. For a week. Everywhere. #TotalChaos."
We've seen all kinds of little issue pop up on cell phones, laptops with manufacturer update packages and even servers with similar update packages. In most cases you get some warning but if your TV or cell phone tells you at 3AM that it's about to do an update you don't stand much of a chance. I think this is one of the reasons so many people are upset about Microsoft pushing Win10 upgrades to everyone and now pushing patches in a similar fashion. Yes it solves the problem of exploits that could be stopped by regular patching but they can't know how every single system will respond.
