those safeguards are *not* sufficient
i learned over many years that i can trust YUM if it comes
to cleanup all kernels except the running one or uninstall
packages and be sure that RPM/YUM/Kernel itself are not killed
so that safeguards did not fall from heaven
they where implemented for a reason
replace YUM with DNF and ignore that history is silly

nobody cares what you think becaue it is a *regression* and not a
matter what someone thinks even the owner of "coreutils"
[root at rawhide ~]# rm -rf /
/usr/bin/rm: it is dangerous to operate recursively on '/'
/usr/bin/rm: use --no-preserve-root to override this failsafe
that said to the trolls saying "rm -rf /" would also not protect you
