Personally,  I don't bother with single-user mode at all within
release branches. I do everything in multiuser mode and reboot
afterwards at my convenience. I've never had a problem, but I do check
UPDATING just in case there's anything abnormal. 

I do it by the book when moving between releases branches though, and
reboot into single user mode after installing the kernel.
