For YaST, the requiring component is yast2-ycp-ui-bindings:

# rpm -qia --requires yast2-ycp-ui-bindings
Name : yast2-ycp-ui-bindings
Version : 3.1.9
Release : 1.3
Architecture: x86_64
Install Date: Fri Oct 9 09:53:32 2015

Then on the way down, libyui7.rpm requires 'yui_backend = 7' which
can be fulfilled EITHER by libyui-ncurses7 OR libyui-qt7.

In such cases it is custom to have package, like yast-qt, and
associate it with the latest and current version. Then if user had
installed libyui-qt6 *and* uast-qt in the past, update would update
yast-qt which would pull in libyui-qt7. Otherwise how users are
supposed to know what version number of the day they have to install?
Or yast could simply go ahead at (propose to) install it itself when
yast2 --qt is called. This would be more user friendly.
