I'm not sure wjhat we mean with "related to EE".
If it is "it is designed to depend on", AFAIK you can't have LGPL modules depending on Proprietary ones.
I have the idea that once you have one Proprietary module in your stack, everything upward (depending on it) is also proprietary.

Regarding the OCA, open source is built into it's mission and  bylaws.
IMHO Proprietary is out of scope, to say the least.
In practical terms, I agree with Stephan: the OCA has no access to Odoo EE and is unable to provide services such as Quality Assurance for EE modules.

But if those modules are built in such a way that they don't require EE to work, then it's business as usual, and they can fit  nicely into  OCA.

Wondering about the legal possibilities of having these modules tested
against the EE. Otherwise, it will be difficult to maintain the quality
control or even getting enough people to review these modules.
