RFE: up2date should install pkgs w/o also checking RHN for new updates

Description of problem:
I'd like to be able to push errata down to a set of servers deployed
in the field (at different locations) using RHN.
I want to leave control of when to install packages to the local
administrators of those servers (as installs may require a reboot). I
don't want to allow local administrators to download additional
packages direct from RHN, only packages that have been selected and
pushed to the servers by me from RHN.
Currently, I can adjust the up2date client configuration to download
packages only. This allows me to push errata downloads to the server.
However to install the errata from the client I have to use several
manual steps to install the downloaded RPMs (see below).
I'd like to be able to do this through up2date (command line switches
ideally), so I only need to do one command instead of several.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
There should be an up2date command to install downloaded packages
(and only downloaded packages), instead of having to do the following
1. rpm -Uvh /var/spool/up2date/*.rpm
2. manually delete the RPMs
3. Update the server's package profile with up2date -p
Internal RFE bug #123929 entered; will be considered for future releases.

for lack of a test plan.
