Inclusion of SCLs has been discussed several times and there's just never
a way to make it work. If I recall correctly, Fedora still doesn't
allow SCLs as well.
Which is a pity to a certain extent as it's the dependency issue of old php
that will prevent an updated owncloud in EPEL6 now that I've looked into it
more. We have to retire it there (though I may add a personal SCL based
copr for it with the caveat I suggest people move to EL7).
