Um, it is all Open Source software, so if a third party (EPEL or
somebody else) wants to also provide it, Red Hat doesn't really have a
leg to stand on asking it to be removed.  You are perfectly within your
rights to purchase RHEL entitlements and load whatever software you
want, even software that Red Hat offers to support at additional cost,
without paying them any more money (you just won't get any support for
it).

If you don't like that, then don't use EPEL (or any other third party
software repository).
