The vast majority of items built for RHEL-8 or the other downstream RHEL 
source builds (Alma Linux, Rocky Linux, CentOS Linux 8 for the rest of 
this month, Oracle Enterprise Linux, etc) .. will work also on CentOS 
Stream 8 .. however, not everything will.

The only things that are BUILT to work on CentOS Stream is EPEL + EPEL 
Next and CentOS Stream and Official SIG Content that lives on 

#rd Part sites, (Ie, the remi items in you example) may or may not be 
built using CentOS Stream.  If they are not, then there may be library 
link issues with those repos.

EPEL-Next has been created to keep EPEL compatible .. other repos will 
need to do asddon repos for items in CentOS Stream that are newer than 
RHEL and newer than downstream RHEL source builds.
