I don't view it as an issue, as long as 
* the upgrade path is right, that is the EPEL package is updated by the 
  corresponding  RHEL/EPEL package in the next RHEL/EPEL release, 
  which implies some coordination with RHEL/EPEL maintainers.
* the packages are stable enough for inclusing in EPEL, which is not the 
  case for the 2 you mentionned, in my opinion, but is certainly so for 
  ant17.
