Rubbish. Half of the stuff in SP2 wasn't released as a hotfix. Service packs, in Microsoft parlance, can include things you can't get any other way. Updates which are simply a collection of previous fixes are usually called 'update rollups' - e.g. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891861 .

True, not all hot fixes are released to public; Microsoft only releases a few to the public, alot of them are only available to their corporate, pay-per-fix customers who pay an arm and a leg for 'special service'.
