We are talking about Javadoc generation, here. I don't think this make a 
big difference if some Javadoc is not up to date simply because you have 
not generated it before committing the code. Except that it cut the 
build time from 10 minutes to 3 minutes, which is good enough to 
guarantee that committers _will_ run the build before committing.

Of course, the release _must_ run a full build.
