I don't think this is true. I have RHEL-5Server (academic)
entitlement, and I don't see "Client" listed anywhere in my list of
available software channels. I only see:

# RHEL Virtualization (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# RHEL Supplementary (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# RHEL Hardware Certification (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# RHEL FasTrack (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# Red Hat Network Tools for RHEL Server (v.5 32-bit x86)

And "python-imaging" is definitely not available to me:

root at bakserv:[~]# yum list python-imaging
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
rhel-i386-server-5        100% |=========================| 1.4 kB    00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files

The situation may be different for those who paid full enterprise
price for RHEL entitlements, but that doesn't change the fact that
unless EPEL provides "client" packages, I'll be left with broken
repositories. I will note, that it makes that much harder for me to
justify paying money to RH if I can have a better service using
