This would break using Vim when vim-minimal and vim-enhanced are

sense - Vi and Vim binaries can exist together just fine.
I have vim-enhanced and vim-minimal installed
# rpm -qa |grep vim
and when I type vi it launches vim.
# whereis vi
vi: /usr/bin/vi /usr/share/man/man1p/vi.1p.gz /usr/share/man/man1/vi.1.gz
# /usr/bin/vi --version
VIM - Vi IMproved 8.2 (2019 Dec 12, compiled Sep 29 2020 00:00:00)
It doesn't look like these are existing together just fine. It seems
that vim takes over vi. Shouldn't these conflict and only one can be
installed over the other?
In the end I find it incorrect to mislead users by default by
them 'Vim works' but Vi is run instead - Vi and Vim don't have the same
set of features, which may lead into bug reports caused by this mistake.
Isn't that the reverse behavior detailed above? I type vi on Fedora
Workstation it launches vim? I assume this isn't causing bug reports.
