Should one be able to install with only release + -security enabled?

I have been testing a network-isolated Ubuntu mirror inside our network and
I am trying to understand if what I envision should work or not.

In particular, I am trying to minimize how much review is needed for
package updates, so I would like to just include the release and security
pockets. However, I am finding a few package updates (in Bionic in my case,
but I think Focal may also have this problem) that only have fixes in the
-updates pocket. This prevents installation from succeeding with preseed.

So far, I have seen apt-setup, but debootstrap and base-installer both need
some adjustment for my test environment.

Should we require -updates as well?

Thank you,
