How about:

"I can't find these two rpm's, but nothing else depends on them -- do
you want to proceed anyway and find the missing rpm's on your own?
"Y/n". You answer "y", after which it drops you into shell and lets you
fix things using wget and rpm? :)

I'd far rather see yum be a maintenance tool and not "anaconda's little
brother".
