yum vs apt



hello,

The questions: "which is better?" and "why make this default instead of that?" 
were probably discussed, and I don't want to start such a discussion now.

I just want to ask, why such the situations are possible and if there is a 
plan to avoid this:

On FC5 I was using only 'yum'. According to this tool all the dependencies 
were satisfied. But today I've installed 'apt' from extras, and 
running "apt-get update && apt-get -s dist-upgrade" returned:
<code>
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  docbook-dtds: PreDepends: openjade (= 1.3.2)
</code>

"rpm -q --requires docbook-dtds" indeed showed, that openjade is required.
Why yum have not installed that?
