I agree that it doesn't need to be part of the DNF core, but a plugin
would be really nice. It's just a safety measure and while we,
relatively seasoned users, are aware that we need to be really careful
when removing packages, a lot of novice users aren't - I've seen quite a
few cases in #fedora over the years where novices didn't check the
transaction report and lost critical packages. 

If there isn't an RFE filed already, I could go ahead and file one. 
Warm regards,
