[Yum] YUM to include changelog

I've been asked by my supervisor why yum check-update can't provide the 
change log info when it notifies of new updates available, without 
having to access another site to see what the patch will do first before 
proceeding with a yum update.

I'm thinking this is beyond the scope of yum and within the realm of the 
individual package developers, however has it been considered before? If 
the change log could be viewed "verbosely" as an optional parameter, I 
guess this would keep him happy!
