That's annoying. Is it something we have to worry about in Fedora and
EPEL proper, that is, would we like to be able to separate owners for
different releases, or is it something we need to worry about only if
infrastructure is kept open for old branches?

I don't think there should ever be a sudden and unnoticed transition. I
like what Jesse proposed with PackageKit for the long term, and in the
short term people would have to manually install a yum config file
(maybe part of a rpm, but manually).
