1. Look on the fedora-packaging list for the discussion
2. my guess is: 
   a. if the fedora.us package had a non-zero epoch it needs to be
maintained - just so users have an upgrade path
   b. if the fedora.us package had an Epoch: 0 drop it and remove
%{epoch} from anyplace you have it in ver strings.


I'm cc'ing the packaging list to see if that seems right to them.
