If you'd like to contribute a Yum plugin or patches to one of the
existing 2 they are in the yum-utils project.  They're not hard to write and
there are a handful of good examples now.  My time is going toward the
current proposal.

Panu does have a plugin in yum-utils to support a uname-r in name scheme
for kernel modules.  Looks like it needs to be updated a bit, but
perhaps that could be a starting point for your work.
