How does that help?  A security issue is a security issue
and needs fixing, regardless of what (other) plugins are in use.

It might make sense to separate out particular plugins,
if for example they have a substantially different dev team
or release cycle to the base product.  But that would have
to be decided on a case-by-case basis, not a one-size-fits-all,
let alone an indiscriminate bundling!
