Am I the only one who [thinks] that being able to rpm -Uvh http://....rpm
is a nice feature?

Uhhh?? rpm does this since version 3.x, or before.

But it appears like this feature is proposed to be axed.

To get some perspective into this, look at the following bugs and ask yourself, what does this have to do with package management?
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=149276
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189107
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=206066

It's not the feature I want to axe, but the client code *in* rpm. There's software designed to deal with these kind of things, let them handle the complexities.
