I would like to see a summary that covers the Release Notes for all components that a CU applies to in the main article.

Right now, there are manual tasks that must be carried out when installing Cumulative Updates. These are SQL related tasks, and the syntax can be different depending on the deployment. It would be nice if this was built into the CU installer GUI to help ease this process.
It would be nice if there was an option to automatically put SCOM into maintenance mode anytime you start the Cumulative Update installer, or Windows Update. Or at least prompt.
In the past, updates to the Lync client have come as Cumulative Update packs which could be rolled out in bulk to upgrade all users to a similar level of patches.
Now that the updates are dumped into the Windows Updates for Office 2013 batch, it's very hard to keep track of JUST the Lync Client updates. We'd like to maintain the Lync updates separately, as the larger CU packs.
Just realised that when you take some role from the Front End away and add it back, the new service is not on the CU level but on the RTM level :(
Isn't great that if you deploy the CU it will also update the deployment cache at the same time? So when you run the deployment wizard you do not need to take care of the CUs.
