Are the updates going to change

I read a few articles this one included and am wondering if the usual Windows updates (KB#######) are going to be changed to a MS - ###### patches format?

So what? the article designation may change, but there is no reason/need to change anything else (does anyone here remember the Q numbering system?)
They are basically irrelevant to WU anyhow as the updates are never downloaded by KB/MS number, but by package.

Sorry Noel I was only asking as the article I got to read I thought was a bit ambiguous being not a Microsoft message, and being a little on the cautious side I thought it prudent to ask maybe I shouldn't have.

Home Premium x64: Can't change new updates time and date
The pull-down menu to the right of "Install new updates" and the one to the right of "at" are both greyed out. I'm tempted to just turn off Automatic Updates altogether if I can't change these to a more amenable time of day for myself and others who may use this machine from time to time. I...

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
