Personally I see it like this:
Those two updates don't give security benefits, they aren't security ones, so you don't gain much from installing them and you don't vitally need them. They don't improve compatibility for users of particular hardware types, they don't improve the running of particular programs a user might have, they don't make windows easier or more convenient to use, they don't give the user more control and freedom with things, they don't make your computer run faster. They might do things you won't like, they might not, no-one is truly sure yet, and no-one yet knows what date it will be when they can be sure. So if those two updates don't do anything useful, and they aren't vitally important, and there are suggestions that they might lead to unpleasant things in future, why bother to install those two? I sort of see this as a "don't fix what isn't broken" matter, it IS NOT "those updates are evil, AVOID them like the plague!!", it IS "those updates won't do anything you want doing, though they might not do anything bad either, why BOTHER installing them?".
