In fact, yum has everything to do with this, and needs to be just as
resilient to the power failure than to the ctrl+c case (or kernel oops, or
rpm crash, or kill -9, or whatever). ie notice the next time it's run
something went wrong and propose the user the appropriate steps to clean
up the mess.

I don't find the "but it can happen other ways" argument very convincing.
Quite the contrary.
