Why not fix Yum so that it can handle dependency resolution problems. With 
Apt someone who does not have audacity installed would simply update their 
system. Someone with audacity installed can either decide to stay there 
until audacity is fixed, or can decide to have apt uninstall audacity and 
update everything else.

That would make a lot of things easier and avoid having people jump up and 
down and scream when there is a dependency problem, or when they have a 
problem mixing repositories.

With apt the user is in control and can define the policy that matches 
with what they want.
