I got both at the same time because I checked email and Drupal.org about the same time.  Simplenews sends email for x time per cron run.  The Security list is sent via Simplenews to allow for integration.  In reality, there is no secure method to ensure that 'legitamte' site admins get notifications before hackers do.
It's a shame you are disappointed.  Please coordinate OFF LIST with the security team for a model you think would be more better faster stronger.

Wow, that whole lag between notifiction channels... I can see the script
kiddies firing up their bots trying to exploit sites between when the
notifications are sent on the dev list, posted to drupal.org, and sent
to the security list...
