Well, not arguing about the fact of it breaking systems, but the

Yes, I remember that.

New users should not get prompted to update all. Perhaps the
default should be different.

In gnome, the 'biggest' issue is probably the lack of a panel
icon to configure it, but
that should not really be an issue: like anything else,
PackageKit is being configured
from the control-center, where a link to gpk-prefs is located
(allowing to 'disable'

Let me see. I'm using 12.1 xfce now, which is similar to gnome and
in fact shares libraries
and things. In the preferences panel I see nothing to configure
the likes of apper.

Assuming that XFCE uses really the same stuff as gnome (and shares
this as well), you would launch gpk-prefs to configure it (gpk being
gnome package kit). Not sure where XFCE lists it..

In order to disable, see
For the rest see "man pk-update-icon" and modify the autostart
desktop file accordingly.
