Question of IBM PowerPC support

Hello EPEL community,
I'm considering going through the steps of getting a Fedora package I maintain 
into EPEL.  This package is currently very arch-specific as it's used for 
collecting instruction trace data to feed into a timer accurate simulator.  The 
architecture in question is IBM PowerPC.  Since Fedora has demoted ppc/ppc64 
from being a primary arch (starting with F13), I'm wondering what effect (if 
any) that decision has on ppc/ppc64 packages in EPEL.  I will want to target 
this package to RHEL 5 and (when available) RHEL 6.  Are there any problems or 
issues I should know about?
