that's not entirely true, otherwise it won't work the way it
does on Rawhide with only "kernel-core" installed, it's pretty
sure a matter of rpm-provides and in that case any distribution
cae name the kernel-package "linux" as long it provides kernel
in it's metadata

[root at rawhide ~]# yum remove kernel
Skipping the running kernel: kernel-core-3.16.0-0.rc1.git4.1.fc21.x86_64
No Packages marked for removal
