I wouldn't advise it because:
1) If you have some services running inside this vserver
and there is a security hole in rpm ( e.g. /tmp/ exploits etc in the past.. - it's best
to always assume that there is one)
it may be possible for the malicious user to gain access to the root server
2) Some rpm packages may contain scripts that stop/start some services.
These are executed as part of the "rpm -U" and are not vserver-aware
so they may stop/start services in the root context.
