I most likely will join you.

So if I understand you correctly you want to ship the 1.1.5 source with 
a 1.1.6-0.3 versioned rpm?
IMHO, since this does not really break anything (1.1.6 being in RHEL5 
Server) it would be much better
to go with the policy of having source version and rpm version 
consistency than having the EPEL/el5 and RHEL5
I also consider this being a matter of opinion as both approaches would 
work in theory :)

FWIW, I think that shipping the 1.1.6 version to EPEL/el5 is more KISS 
than modifying the release bit.

I'll check this out and see if mailman did something funny.
