Good point. In this case I think the package would naturally stop evolving in EPEL, as the incentive for inclusion would be removed. However, that transition (exit?) would be purely voluntary on the part of the EPEL pkg maintainer ... as RH isn't going to "force" it.

Similarly, what to do if a package is included in RHEL5 but not in RHEL4. I would think its fair game for EPEL to build the RHEL4 version but not the RHEL5 version.
