They used yum because it was easier and more flexible than up2date.  we ship 
yum and sqlite for cobbler but keep the versions less that what is in CentOS. 
so that epel customers dont need to worry about our version replacing the 
CentOS one.

I know that I personally use CentOS  as i'm sure most of the EPEL developers 
do.   mock in epel ships with configs  pointing to CentOS for developers to 
build against.
