I asked about this in the past (considering the AGPL);
here's the response I received:

  One easy option for the code you write yourself would be to license it
  under the AGPL with an extra permission:
  You may also want to review this answer:

  Because the code that you write would be licensed under the AGPL with an
  extra (removable) permission, then other AGPL projects will be able to
  use it without compatibility issues. Of course, they will need to add an
  extra permission themselves if they also need the EPL-licensed components.
  Also, if you make sure that you license your code under "AGPL v3 or
  later" then future AGPLv4-licensed programs will be able to use your
  code as well.
  I hope this helps.
