Not really. You can update a live system with no problems. Obviously (at
least obvious to me) if you are updating an application that is
currently running then you should quit and restart it before doing
anything else.

There is no mechanism inside rpm that would allow that to happen. It
would be possible to add a preinstall script to warn users but I don't
think it is a big deal.
