Holger responded to me personally, I'll share his response...

"the RTP project is a subproject of EPP because it provides packages.
But the way packages are built is different. So, the RT Packages are
not true EPP packages. As you pointed out, they are just packaged RT

So to answer your question, they are just providing packages.
