Likely via the "install additional media" in firstboot, which afaik
could be used for this.
But well, lots of EPEL packages require parts of the core-os (EL in this
case) -- those are not available easily at that point for if user if he
didn't yet register his system on RHN.
Which is why everything should be built against Fedora Enterprise(TM).
Fedora Enterprise a library of packages from an upstream provider put
into a format that other organizations can rebuild cleanly with their
own patches. Yes with Fedora Enterprise(TM) you can build your own
Oracle(TM) spin of EL without problems
