currently, installing yum-utils for compatibilty also pulls in dnf-plugins-core and all its dependencies amounting to 6 extra packages and 5M on disk, when most of the aliased commands are provided natively by DNF.
splitting these natively-supported commands into a yum-utils-core would provide the needed functionality in just a few K versus 5M.
If they're provided natively by dnf, I don't see the need for yum-utils-core. Just move the commands to the main dnf package and leave yum-utils for the ones that aren't natively provided.
