in some circumstances you are correct.
this would require an up to date local database of all the dependencies
for these packages - on RHEL systems this is provided by the
rpmdb-redhat package. Which, if you update your system regularly (as you
arguably should) get quickly out of date. It doesn't actually tell rpm
where to find dependencies either, hence the use of yum (and on RHEL,
up2date) to install packages...
