Windows Update does allow you to just grab patches rather than upgrading wholesale to the newest browser release, which is what I do on our Windows servers to avoid unnecessary problems. Besides getting people up to the new version is a good thing - better standards compliance (be it additional support or eliminating CSS bugs) and is more likely to keep the customer using the browser because it'll presumably work better.

Mozilla does it to with the version detection on the default webpage, but NS branded releases should prompt to upgrade like IE for the reasons stated above.
