Anaconda used to work like this too for upgrades (AFAIK, it even systematically 
did install A, cleanup A etc. no matter what the dependencies were). Sadly this 
has regressed to the much less failure-resilient "install all packages from a 
CD/DVD/ISO, cleanup all installed packages" ordering with the switch to the yum 
backend.
