I think installing updates and installing previously uninstalled
packages are different things and packagekit will allow the former but
perhaps now, not the latter.

You might want to look at the release notes...
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f12/en-US/html/

specifically the 'Security' section where it talks about PolicyKit which
is what I think you are referring to and will give you some clues about
editing.
