Default Ignoring packages and piecemeal updates

Hi archers,

It has been repeated a lot of times that doing piecemeal updates with
pacman -Sy pkgname is not a very good idea. What about ignoring
packages? Is it as dangerous?

And a more general question: is it even theoretically possible to have
a bleeding edge distro with piecemeal updates and with no required
manual intervention during updates or is it just a pipe dream?

Best,
Denis.
