Unlike some who feel its perfectly fine to download any and all updates (just because), I've been around long enough to know, understand and appreciate the slogan "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Remember, this is the question I responded to: "Question for you elite owners. If sharp released the firmware for the color fix today would you guys go through the trouble and update?"
That's why I said there's no trouble. There were no qualifiers on how the update should be performed in that question. The Elite does an automatic download and it's up to the owner to press OK to install. So there's no trouble at all. A very nice way to perform updates.
To address your scenario (which is not the manner in which the Elite receives its updates), you know me better than that. Of course I'd do it, but maybe I'd wait for others to do it first.
Seriously though, because I don't see the issue in the vast majority of programming doesn't mean I still don't strive for perfection. If I can get what I already feel is the best picture on the market slightly better, why not? But that surely doesn't indicate that I or others feel there is such a deficiency. If I can get another 1% out of the display with an update, I'll do it.
I happen to agree with you though that sometimes updates fix one thing and break another. If I never installed the update for fear of breaking something, no biggie. But historically I've been fortunate with updates, rarely rarely has anything gone awry for me with the many updates I've installed.
Besides, it will do my heart good to see the glass blocks on the Today Show in their proper shade of cyan.
