Or just the no-cost RHEL developer subscription? It seems like this is a
good use case for that, if it could be made easy enough that it isn't
painful for EPEL packagers.

Currently a mock -r epel-8 can be done on a EL7/EL8 and any active Fedora. It does not need any passwords or config setup.. just run a command. The developer subscription requires additional setup to point to the EPEL config to the access.redhat.com servers and similar things. It is easier to point the configs to the Springdale or similar repos.

This may change sometime in the future..
