Three safety locks the last time I used it. After inserting the magazine I
had to load the bullet first, then I had to unlock the gun and then I had
to pull the trigger. I don't think that this procedure happens accidentally.

Because you don't think about it dosen't mean others think about it. If
you build scripts that provision systems after minimal install, doing
thinks like yum -y update, reboot and do cleanup like yum -y remove kernel,
it works fine with yum but completely crash your system with DNF. Of
course, you can wrap around this and build you own checks, but why should
the checks be implemented in the scripts if the current update manager
already provide this kind of checks and features?
