We dont really have much interest here as to what EPEL or any other 
third party repo is doing - you will need to chase it up with them.

The reason why we carried it in 5.0 etc was since yum-updatesd didnt 
really do much. If there is anyway to make yum-updatesd run its updates 
at a specific time, that would completely remove the need / role for 
yum-cron. Which might be the best result allaround anyway.
