This is nice to have, but let's face it:
The really annoying issue here is not the actual information retrieval, 
but the way Mark of WP related to it, as being a must, with no way out - 
take it or leave it.
This makes the /human/ side of the system very unreliable, as opposed to 
Drupal where, so far, there is a lot of respect and consideration to end 

An opt-out option (for software updates) achieves both needs:
1. It keeps the system secured
2. It lets the user decide, keeping the software (i.e., the Drupal 
project) reliable

And let also remember that the Drupal module IS turned off by default, 
as mentioned before.
