My guess one would not be able to use yum without root permissions. To
my belief yum needs permissions to update the repo data, hence it might
fail. which means we might need yum itself in a different location which
will not depend on files which are on /etc, /var, etc.

Yep it is going to be a waste of space !!. +1 on the above.
