such cronjobs are typically running in thge middle of the night
where nobody reboots a machine and since the admin knows about
the cronjob - well he knows

it's a strange argumentation in the complete context to say
hey it's fine that "dnf remove yum dnf kernel" kills your
complete setup which was not possible over many years and at
the same time say "oh no the other thing supported over years
is a bad idea and the admin needs handholding"
