My main concern would be that it would give an implicit approval of all
EPEL packages for CentOS 7.  That also implies that we would support
EPEL packages in the IRC channel and other forums even though CentOS has
no control over those packages at all.

On the flip side it also means that to be fair CentOS should include the
-release packages for other third-party repositories as well.
