Just wondering: would it be fine for EPEL to ship for example
mysql-connector-odbc under a different name
("mysql-connector-odbc-epel")?

and this form of 'at the end of the package name' marking would be an improvement, compared to a repotag at the end of release, just how?

It is just as unsightly, and just as much, if not worse, namespace clutter, but worse, as it now would need to carry an explicit (and manual, hence error-prone) spec file mungeing:
  Provides: mysql-connector-odbc
entry for dependency resolution. Just wait until a versioned Provides is needed which cannot be well expressed.
