policy regarding pkg's migrating epel -> rhel



I'd like to ask the Steering committee to consider enhancing existing policy documents, namely,
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/GuidelinesAndPolicies
to explictly mention the case where packages migrate from epel -> rhel.

Case in point here is a mild contention with what to do with java-1.6.0-openjdk, where it recently moved into rhel, but is still currently in epel repos. See also,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=504189

I hope I don't put words into his mouth, but as I understand it,
Lubomir's contention is that the upgrade path issues should be considered a blocker to removing this from epel, ie,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=499079

My current opinion is that these are orthogonal issues, but I'm curious what others think. What say you?
