Really? That is a little dramatic I think. The Akismet upgrade doesn't force you to reboot your server or anything close. 

Would you rather have the plugin excluded from the WordPress core? Then you would need to download and install it separate. Many software distributions, once installed will check it there was an update. This is pretty common practice from what I've seen.
