I'm also not a lawyer but I find the statement worrying and if someone is
going to say something in illegal, they'd better be right.

Take a look at the two statements regarding name use.

 4. The names "Apache Cocoon" and  "Apache Software Foundation" must  not  be
    used to  endorse or promote  products derived from  this software without
    prior written permission. For written permission, please contact
    apache@apache.org.

 5. Products  derived from this software may not  be called "Apache", nor may
    "Apache" appear  in their name,  without prior written permission  of the
    Apache Software Foundation.

I don't believe that points 4 and 5 are violated by "package
org.apache.xmlform" any more than the statement "import
org.apache.xmlform"; the license precludes neither one of these things.
If the ASF is going to enforce the former using these statements are we
all going to need written permission to import apache packages or
implement apache interfaces.

-k.

If you don't test then your code is only a collection of bugs which 
apparently behave like a working program.
