Because it's so much simpler to update the damn whole system rather
than wondering whether a partial update will work or not.
Doesn't that make any sense?

Of course, there are many cases where you can do it, and it will not
break. But there are also cases where it will break, which is why I
was just thinking that maybe we should not add any features that
encourage doing partial updates, or at least make it easier.
