It is possible. I can (and do) build --scratch packages in koji. I can't do
real builds in EPEL because there are downstream packages in RHEL.

But whether I build them there or in Copr it's still not the same as having
them in the CentOS $sig repos and have them be installable using the
$package-repo RPM from Extras.  It's about convenience for the end users,
one stop shopping, the appearance of legitimacy and the cachet of being a
part of CentOS, etc.

Which was the point of putting our packages in the (Storage) SIG in the
first place.

Asking us to build them in EPEL or Copr is a step backwards.
