What I did find 'strange' was that I needed the 'older version' 'to hand' (in my case in the current directory). For whatever reason this struck me as odd. Perhaps explain this (and why) in the docs?
If you have older package in repositories, you do not need rpm in the same directory. But what you need to keep your eye on is that if you already have rpm's in the current directory yum will use them for installation, so my practice is to leave out of directories with rpm's in it.
