Installing yum-cron

From the school of "the purpose of installing packages is to clutter your filesystem with files that don't do anything" comes yum-cron. Why anyone would want this installed but not working is not clear to me, but:

yum install -y yum-cron
service yum-cron status | grep -q enabled || service yum-cron start
chkconfig yum-cron on
