Centrally manage Office 365 Updates

We have recently switched to Office365. After about a month of using the suite our users are now seeing that updates are needed. Ideally we would like to centrally manage these updates to test before releasing them. In talking with Microsoft support there is no way to centrally manage the updates through WSUS which is where all other updates are managed before released in our environment. Does anyone have a work around for how to manage these updates other then allowing updates to install automatically for the suite on a per user basis?

Seems to be one of the big questions and it's about installing the complete Office suit instead of updates:

So what I am seeing in the article you posted and also reading back though the articles related to the one you provided is that I would need to reinstall our end-users ProPlus suite using the configuration.xml. With our custom settings for where it will update from?

TestGroup gets an up to date Office from an internal source after each patch day. When tested, the source is moved to the "refular" user source and is apporved to all non testing users.

The XML file points to different setup files (1. up to date untested setup/2. regular fully tested Setup)
