Just compare content of the http://www.ibiblio.org/maven/tomcat/jars/ 
with http://archive.apache.org/dist/jakarta/tomcat-4/archive/. Maven has 
single 4.0 release, and single 4.1 release even now. What will it have 
several years from now? Nothing?

So your answer is "nobody" :-)
If somebody steps forward (like you, for example) and creates a 
repository of software cocoon release depends on, there is at least some 
guarantee that this repository will happen and will be complete. And if 
you just sit and wait when source code will be put in by corresponding 
team, there is no much chance this will happen at all - simply because 
other teams do not have reasons or motivation to do so.
