One thing people should be aware is that EPEL is built for RHEL and
that the package list is not the same between RHEL and CentOS. For
example, CentOS adds cloud-related ones to the centos-extras repo
which may overlap EPEL's.

By the way, when I ran the same yum repolist command on my RHEL box
with epel enabled, there was no conflict.
