CentOS is a RHEL clone except that there are no updates for older point 

it was multiple times statet by the maintainers on the mailing list that 
you have to apply *all* errata updates nothing else is supported

it's not a matter of dependencies, it's just a matter of what 
combinations of packages are tested for regressions and the fact that 
there are no updates for RHEL without a good reason

how does dependencies help when there was a critical bug fixed in 
package A which may hit your updated version of package B because the 
combination of that versions never was tested

feel free to ignore that but you are at your own if things behave 
unexpected when the developers say "just only use 'yum upgrade'" which 
applies also for minor releases, when CentOS 6.7 is out there will be no 
single update for CentOS 6.6 packages and hence "yum upgrade" brings you 
to CentOS 6.7 in a few weeks which is from that moment on the only 
supported CentOS 6.x
