Yes, there are solutions for those running multiple sitse on Wordpress: multi site, management tools etc.
The problem is that a lot of the Wordpress user base who use it for a relatively low priority site, such as a personal blog, and for us it is not really worth the effort.
While any CMS needs to be updates, WP needs a lot. I would now gladly sacrifice some features for less frequent updates.
