A friend just told me that he would not do the firmware upgrade for his D3s.   But how can he know that there is nothing there that would help him?   Since many upgrades are undocumented he's actually taking a risk.

I don't understand. What would keep your friend from updating his firmware? Whether or not he has an issue that appears in the firmware update notes is immaterial. You always want to upgrade to the latest firmware. Only a tiny fraction of what's actually fixed gets mentioned. Your friend is doing him/herself a disservice, but that's their option.

Yes, but it's also perfectly reasonable not to update firmware if none of the changes are relevant to you.  An accurate list of all the changes would make that option less of a guess.
