The reason for not doing so were that one would fork all specfiles.

I'd say ignore it. The current users of EPEL are on this list.

We'll have also other issues to resolve (like qt4 on EPEL4 > qt4 on
RHEL5, and if we check we'll probably find more) and we need to keep a
rawhide attitude (aka flexibility) otherwise we'll have to start using
epochs before launching.
