I'd be inclined to try using something other than YUM, though.  Having
read messages about yum removing one package resulting in the complete

All of these happened to be user mistakes. Yum always warns about dependencies.

Probably due to bad habits picked up from reading how-tos on websites
that say do a:  yum -y install whatever*

It is bad not dangerous habit when you are doing installations like that. yum -y remove <package> is inviting lots of trouble though. Dependencies on these can very quickly escalate to lots of packages if you pick one of the base package. Can't blame the tool in this instance.
