No, it's the other way round: yum is more efficient in downloading
because it most often does not need to download everything, while the
other depsolvers always download the bist in advance. It's a bit
oversimplified, but that servers for a first picture.

The discussion is about whether some packages force yum to go download
and drop its bandwidth performance to that of the other depsolvers,
but that's just 0.7% of all packages, so not really worth attacking at
all IMHO.
