Yes, that's a better fit for how many people want to consume Storage SIG

E.g. Ceph's upstream CI builds using EPEL packages. And a lot of other
consumers of Storage SIG packages are using EPEL, and we sometimes run into
conflicts when they have EPEL enabled.

For C8 Stream I would have preferred to not have to build the two dozen or
so dependencies before I could build Ceph itself.

So +1 from me on being able to use EPEL in CBS for SIG packages.
