1. What are you saying? I consider a support package that is not removed when
the main package is removed a packaging mishap. %{fontname}-common should not
exist in the system if there is no %{fontname}-fonts package installed.

2. What "undocumented yum behaviour" might you be referring to? The thing that
a package automatically provides itself with its own version, and yum updates
packages with newer versions?
