    initial v1  
    22> I’ve always thought something like this was plugin territory

    4 Thank you for illustrating this point perfectly. [https://wordpress.org/plugins/skip-updates/ Your plugin isn't taken]. If your plugin doesn't protect itself, someone named "Skip Jones" could create it and have it do something else update-y. Maybe no name-based shenanigans are required and it could simply skip updates outside of business hours so that someone would be on the clock in case anything needs fixing. Now every plugin and theme that was protected by your plugin is trashed. Maybe your plugin does protect itself but someone disabled it, or it failed for some other reason, and both it and the other plugins get wiped out.
