I would propose to not add any temporary repositories onto poms but you 
external settings file instead. (see below for details)

What about checking out archetypes:
and building them this way:
mvn install -s testing-cocoon-settings.xml

I've created this file and attached to the message I'm writing. Of 
course it demands some extra strokes while building Cocoon for testing 
but as soon as artifacts are released to the central you can omit -s 
parameter and be sure that your build still works and you have clean 
poms (no temporary repositories). Also you really test archetypes tagged 
for release, as you pointed out there is no much difference here but 
it's more elegant IMO.

Thanks for your work! I'll give it some time now.
