It is the recommended way to chose the package name as group id. If Jakartea wouldn't have
an own mirror into the repo at ibiblio, your upload would been refused by the Maven team.
And IMHO it is a good practice, because the user must not guess about an arbitrary chosen
groupId by the developers of a package.
