Of course I understand, that dbus is nice and so on, but I'm not seeing
how it is really useful. Again, the push happens about every 24 hours and

I am not wrong here. Why do we generate such unnecessary load and traffic?

Because you do not know *when* the update push happens. And there are
third-party repos which sometimes push several updates a day.

maybe true, but do users really need to be so up-to-date? Mirrors also need
time to synchronize, as we learned in this thread, right? I'm still lacking
a good reason why we're checking each yum interaction for updated metadata
as far as I can see.

It's checking for new metadata when the cache timeout occurs. It's an option per-repo or globally.
