I would love it if the "UPDATE NOTIFICATIONS" could be turned OFF... it gets really old opening up your WP Admin and seeing the same Plugins needing updated 2-3-4 times a month... with no WP version changes..
I think a lot of these plugin sites just put out an update to get traffic to their site or bring more attention to their plugin.
It would be nice to have different levels of updates... Mandatory Updates for security reasons or WP version changes... and lower level updates that are not that important..
Either way it would be nice to turn off the notifications because they are extremely annoying... Or better yet put a limit on the amount of updates a plugin can have in a given year... to 12.. once a month should be fine for regular updates... any more than that it's just SPAM...
