Reliably - no.

If you are formatting with Windows XP - just download the IT version of
Windows XP SP3 and install it after the clean install and before ever
connecting to the Internet. You might have 10-15 after that.

No.

Description of the contents of Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003 software
update packages
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824994
%windir%\$hf_mig$ folder

From the above article:-

When a security update, critical update, update, update rollup, driver, or feature pack
installs GDR version files, the hotfix files are also copied to the %windir%\$hf_mig$
folder. This supports migration to the appropriate files if you later install a hotfix or
service pack that includes earlier versions of these files. For example, consider the
following scenario:

1. You apply a security update that installs a GDR version of File.dll with a version
number of 5.2.3790.1000 and copies a hotfix version of File.dll with a version number of
5.2.3790.1000 to the %windir%\$hf_mig$ folder.

2. You apply a hotfix that includes a hotfix version of File.dll with a version number
of 5.2.3790.0000.

In this scenario the hotfix installation in step 2 installs the hotfix version of File.dll
(version number 5.2.3790.1000) from the %windir%\$hf_mig$ folder instead of the hotfix
version of File.dll (version number 5.2.3790.0000) from the hotfix package.
