The mechanism isn't important.
Yes it is. If capabilities are added to apt, then there is no additional maintanance for the pool. It gets the same files, just delayed by an interval selected by the user.
What you're proposing is to go ahead and get those packages even with known major problems, rather than wait until those major problems are fixed.
No, that's not it either...
What I would like is some time to find out that a problem exists before I install a package. If I could hold updates back for a week or two, that would provide some time for major problems to become known. Finding out that a package is messed up after it has been installed it isn't all that helpful.
