if it obsoletes and replaces yum it has to provide /usr/bin/yum

because one of the reasons Linux is not that widely used is
because you have all the time replace and rewrite things while
a smart upstream could avoid that by just place symlinks or
not break compatibility for the sake of changes

and yes i think it would be a great idea install DNF only on
new F22 setups while obsolete and replace yum finally one
release later to get more widely testing and at the same
time avopid to break 5 and more years old server setups
with scripting around yum because some of the early bugs
maybe be reported by the users of new install and fixed
until F23
