There is something misleading about what it does.  yum remove yum in
Rawhide tells

"Error: Trying to remove "yum" which is protected
  You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
  You could try running : rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest"

Neither suggestions are applicable here.  The protect packages plugin
suggested using a override switch if the user is sure and that seems
more appropriate.
