Unfortunately this won't work.

Redirect POMs only work if there is a dependency on that particular
version, and Maven Central does not allow previous versions to be
updated to add redirect POMs. Even if it did, it would take some while
for local workspaces to retrieve the new details.

If an application depends on Validation 1.3 and Validation 1.4 (via
different transitive dependencies) then it will get copies of both

The only safe solution is to change the package name as well.

Or don''t fix the groupId until you have to change the package name
for some other reason, e.g. API breakage.
