Nothing definitive in that link. Security updates are mandated, but likely "other" update options as to drivers or features may be a result of that update pack.

the title
"Update enables additional capabilities for Windows Update notifications in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1"

says something... well I guess if anyone here ends up hearing anything maybe they can post back one of these days

Well unless one is an MS insider, it is unlikely there will be much insight.. As Karlswelt mentioned there is probably some new roll-out plan for system updates.

It seems to fix a few issues with other updates that were removed after "cleanup your disk" actions (removal of temporary files for updates). There's rumours it has to do with the free upgrade to windows 10 that will be pushed through windows update it seems and heck it may even have to do something with the plan to put windows updates through P2P networks... We'll see...
