>Why would you leave yourself vulnerable if apps you don't use aren't updated?

Just because something isn't on the screen it doesn't mean it doesn't have exploit vectors.

Your example of IE6 is crap because of the components from IE6 that other apps can use.. so you might use that copy of IE6 as a browser but there's nothing stopping other applications from using components from it and thus becoming exploitable.
