Mainly for two reasons afaics:

- Because the rules in EPEL imho should be as identical to the rules
from Fedora as much as possible, as everything that differs between the
two will make life harder for users and packagers (for example a package
that currently uses fedora-usermgmt in Fedora could not simply be build
for EPEL without adjustments)

- Because having a tool like fedora-usermgmt that solves a particular
problem is IMHO not worth much, if half of the Fedora packages use it,
while the other half doesn't

So having a solution for Fedora (use it everywhere, don't use it at all,
use another solution that fixes the problems fedora-usermgmt tries to
solve) would be the best for everyone.
