A change request has been filed to investigate and address this issue that you raise attention to.
I tend agree that when check='always' and policy='prompt-update' (the update dialog says it is optional), users should be able to delay the update as long as they want, not just this one time.
I am just curious as to why application developers want their app users to completely control when the application update should happen. Would it is more preferable to have users have limited control on update delays? This way the application releases and their usages would be more predictable from the developer/publisher point of view?
To answer your question: It might be possible that a new version requires some new hardware or software that the user does not have. Thus, to keep the old version which works fine, the user might want to keep the old one. Or the new version has a different behavior or design and the user prefers the old one.
