Don't hold your breath on the EE width. It is out there, but not common. From what I understand it is manufactured primarily for the European market (aligns with their sizing scheme better or some such) and is not a regularly stocked item over here. Also not made in every style. It isn't a problem to get if you're buying from AE, but finding them on ebay isn't as easy as E or EEE.
This comes from an SA at Allen Edmonds, and I feel your pain (well, it only really hurts if I wear D). I'm sometimes between the E and EEE, but a little stretch on an E in the right places works fine, and actually makes the overall fit better. No competition worries though, I'm a 10.5!
