You know that depsolve is mostly delegated to rpmlib, right?

I think it will come down to this ... use yum for Core/Extras and
where default behavior of a 3rd party repo is acceptable to you.
Otherwise, use smart for any other weird, magic, bit-twiddling
behavior needs.

If a plugin can provide the solution you layed out, then by all means,
provide it. I highly doubt the proposed solution will go into yum
