I agree with that and the kernel removal behavior isn't the only
difference.  I mean, how often would one run dnf remove glibc on purpose
and the significant amount of accidental runs of yum that caused serious
problems resulted in yum developers adding some protection against removing
key packages.  dnf changing this expected behavior is problem and clearly
this is a design decision which I think needs to revisited.
