Not sure on this. EPEL has no own devel branch. So when we get closer to
RHEL6 we could simply branch all EL-5 packages that are still active in
Fedora (e.g. have no dead.packges file) and ask all the owners of new
packages to ask manually for a EL-6 branch. Sounds like a easy solution
for the problem and makes sure all packages in EPEL6 have a owner.

For stuff in the epel-testing repo it might be as easy to request a
delete a package shortly before the testing stuff becomes stable with
the next quarterly update. That's a bit manual work, but it hopefully
should not happen that often.
