Why are you asking? May be you should let your imagination run riot.

I don't even remember I ever needed "yum remove kernel". Does it mean 
that "yum remove kernel" should not work at all no matter if it leaves 
running kernel on the system or not? Or should it be completely 
prohibited? Why we keep 3 versions of kernel on the system anyway?

Also, I'd like to point out that "yum/dnf remove" by default shows what 
it is going to do and you have to explicitly confirm the action, isn't 
it enough? How much protection do you need?
