I was merely giving one example... There might be more situations not

Absolutely. I think Team uploads are best treated like NMUs -- non intrusive 
and conservative but necessary. That rule is perfectly applicable to severe 
bugs or transitions as well as to mass updates where impact is well 
understood or safe.
