The question was not who uses POI, but who would also (if any) use XmlBeans.

The beauty of my proposal is that you do not need to change naming or other stuff. You simply
put it in your codebase in a separate directory. The reason is that you do not release XmlBeans,
you release POI containing (not using, as you have been doing) XmlBeans.

In case you want to restart the project, you need to change name as well as go through the
process of asking to be a TLP.
