Yes, it apparently exists (postuntrans, preuntrans), but they (too) 
don't seem to work for single package erasure.

I think it's (mostly) ok:
1.  That'll like be a corner case that doesn't happen too often in practice.
2.  I consider it an rpm bug, which we should be able to drive to get 
fixed, right? (:
