I'm not sure I agree, and I'm pretty sure Jules doesn't... You are not
the first to ask:-).

The thinking here is that the update jobs for functionality you
*might* enable later should still be active, so that when you _do_
activate them, all updates are already in place. The correct way to
avoid this for AV is to deinstall any unused AV product. For the
phishing thing... there simply is no such thing.
