There was a discussion here about the RHEL layered products a while
back, and IIRC the decision was that EPEL could duplicate/replace the
layered products (and that the layered products couldn't be dependencies
for EPEL).

So the first two in your list (the Workstation/Optional repos) should be
added, but the others should not.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
