 > The way I was thinking of it was:
 > - The constant disables the UI aspects of the feature and defaults all
 plugins to `$update = false` or `true`.
 > - The only way to toggle a plugin's auto-update status when the constant
 is defined would be to use the `auto_update_plugin` filter (or a new
 filter that I am debating adding).

 Would that mean that a plugin could itself override any value set in the
 constant by using the filter? I'm not sure that's a good thing - I could
 perhaps see the argument that a plugin author might want to disable auto-
 updates for their plugin, but would we want them to be able to turn them
 on even if the site owner has chosen to turn them off?

 You could of course still override that again with another filter using a
 later priority, but that would require you to know you needed to do so in
 the first place.
