Getting MailScanner into EPEL would be great. I do agree. However, running
a server platform on Fedora is an amazingly bad idea. The software is so
bleeding edge that entirely defeats the purpose of running it on a server
because it is not what you need for a server platform, which is: mature,
stable, secure, and reliable.

So, no, newer does not equal better for servers where critical services are
handled. Of course, some may disagree.
