Well ... my opinion is this:

Just because the release RPM is in extras does not mean that people have
to (or will) install it.  People have to "yum install epel-release"
before they get access to the repo.

I would assume if someone wanted to install the epel-release package,
the majority of them would want at least the main binary repository to
be enabled by default.

If someone wants EPEL installed and wants it instead off (I think by far
the minority ... does someone disagree?), they can modify their .repo
file manually to turn it off.

That being the case, I would think the best thing is that we just build,
sign, and push the current release file from the EPEL repo for c5 and c6
in our CentOS Extras .. in the appropriate spot.
