DNF is way too buggy to give operations like installing and removing DEs a try on a productive system. I would always recommend to do such stuff in with an install in a VM (using Gnome Boxes or `virt-manager1) or using a Live Image.

Anything else will screw up the system, or at the very least require a lot of manual troubleshooting. To date, dnf is not even capable of talking to Gnome Software and perform a reliable dnf autoremove.

So, just be careful on what you test on productive systems.
