I can answer this. :-)

I have Fedora 9 on my left hand and RHEL 5 on my right hand,literately, 
As a Red Hat employee, I urge myself to support both the latest
released versions on Fedora and RHEL.
I suspect there are many people have similar situation,
thus EPEL is required.

As for Fedora Legacy, just lack of critical mass.
