Please don't believe or spread this FUD!

EPEL is more like a 2nd-party repo than a 4th-party repo. It is tested with 
both RHEL and CentOS and has a strict policy of not mucking with RHEL/CentOS 
packages (unlike some other repos which will happily replace RHEL/CentOS 
packages with newer or patched versions) and it is promoted by Red Hat (though 
its use is not supported commercially by Red Hat, but neither is CentOS nor the 
repositories you're recommending).
