EPEL doesn't include software that can't be redistributed legally as open
source, as it is part of Fedora. Fine with me, BTW.
If this repository is unwilling to provide all packages, is there a
process in place to permit the other necessary repositories to be
enabled without conflicts?   Or is there another repository with a more
inclusive policy?

With the yum-priorities plugin, you can give priorities to repositories. Repositories with a higher priority cannot overwrite packages from repositories with a lower priority.

I think you can end up with problems that are even harder to fix if you do this and then the wrong repo updates a library.
