That will fail on one very simple example:
I can be connected on 2G network in one day, and on a 100mb/s one the next day.
The time to download the updates will be very very different, while the time to install them on the same HW would be ~ the same.
Plus many users/companies have local repos (mirrors, apt-cacher, squid).
