Comment 16 of the Bugzilla suggests that the running kernel is
retained during updates in DNF, as it is in Yum.

I don't know if that's correct and it doesn't invalidate any of the
arguments about general safety, but apparently update does do
something similar to the Yum behaviour (it inverts the meaning of the
related setting though).
