Comment(by scribu):

 > hmm can't argue with it being consistent with the core db upgrade, and
 for most plugin updates it won't be an issue, but there will occasionally
 be plugin updates where something needs to be updated immediately. In
 those cases, the plugin may behave inconsistently until the user accesses
 the admin area (typically in my case that could be up to a week!).

 No matter how the plugin does it, it won't be able to sense how often you
 login to the admin. So you would have to modify it either way.

 We can educate plugin authors that the update hook will only run in the
 admin and they can decide for themselves if they should use
 register_update_hook() or a custom solution.
