As a user I enjoy centos for its stability, including ABI stability, and I
guess other also do. If adding the main EPEL repo breaks that I think it
will be of much less use.

In Fedora Extras there is a best effort to be latest and greatest. It is
the exact opposite, we cannot be in line with what is done for fedora.

Having packages packagers cannot reasonably commmit to keep ABI
stability in a separate repo under the EPEL umbrella would seem right 
to me, however.
