Hey Michiel,
AFAIK/understood: The logic is simply the other way around;
a) you dont need to have any cron-jobs @ the caretaker_instance s.
b) just make sure that the caretaker-server has recent updates from ter.
c) the caretaker-server is simply pulling a list & version-numbers of 
installed EXTs from the caretaker_instance s and comparing it against 
it's own "knowledge" about insecure extensions.

So you just have to "take care" of TER-Udpates on the caretaker-server 
instance see b)

hth, regards Georg
