[Yum] Depending on an older package breaks yum update

(I tried to post a trac ticket but got a permissions issue...)
Basically, if I have package foo that requires package bar version 1, and
version 2 is available in the repository, I would expect yum's dependency
resolution to simply hold bar back at version 1. What happens instead is
when I try to run a yum update, yum finds the newer version of bar,
realizes that it will break foo's requirement, and gives up (suggesting I
re-run with --skip-broken).
It's possible to work around this by installing the versionlock plugin and
using that to blacklist newer versions of bar, but I feel like yum should
just resolve the dependency tree.
(I can give reproduction steps if needed but I don't want to spam the list.)
