This is incorrect. Yum asks for confirmation before deleting anything,
same as it does for installing and
Unless of course you ran "yum -y", or your yum.conf(5) file has been
modified from the default:
Either ‘1’ or ‘0’. Determines whether or not yum prompts
for confirmation of critical actions. Default is ‘0’ (do prompt).
Command-line option: -y
Either ‘1’ or ‘0’. Without this option, yum will not
prompt for confirmation when the list of packages to be installed exactly
those given on the command line. Unless assumeyes is enabled, it
will still prompt for package removal, or when additional packages need to
be installed to fulfill dependencies. Default is ‘1’.

Delete a module,
reply Y, and yum will do it. Yum will also delete all the
dependencies. Choose the right module to delete, and YUM and rpm will disappear.
