Fedora is the place to try out bonkers stuff.  If RedHat is satisfied
with dnf then they will include it and not yum in RHELN.  Maybe they
will make yum an alias to dnf, who knows.  But whatever they do it's
much less likely to be bonkers.

Who knew yum before Yellow Dog Linux?

CentOS 7 is yum based, not dnf.
