I thought from looking at the maven dev list that maven now or in a  
couple days is going to support staging releases.  I'm considerably  
less than thrilled by the idea of changing what we vote on,  
especially just when it looks like hope is on the horizon.

I'm definitely in favor of releasing the specs now, but I'd be more  
comfortable voting on binaries as we have in the past.

ATM I'm in an internet constrained environment and haven't been able  
to do a review of what's up for voting.  Hopefully this will be fixed  
in a day or two.
