They are both the target :)  there is no reason to target only one.

the buildroots get updated when the next RHEL is released. we clean up things 
moved from epel to rhel when CentOS releases.  due to this particular change 
things will be broken for a short time,  but thats out of our control.  
ideally the new packages needing rhel 5.5 will sit in testing until such time 
as centos 5.5 is out.  it will mean that an epel and rhel user will have to 
use updates-testing for those packages,  but i think that's ok.
