Sure there can be breakages, but i have also experienced breakages (even
huges one like 2009.0 with kd4 updats completely uninstalling kde3 even
though kde 3 was still supported in 2009.0) with the mandriva model of
backported security fixes.

Saying that the current mdv model is safer than a 'light' rolling model as
suggested in the previous posts is your personal opinion, not a fact.
