Most likely it won't be compatible with other distros and then people will 
start complaining that it doesn't work for them, creating unnecessary 
confusion and developer time overhead.

IMHO, the best solution is for you to upload it somewhere in the permanent 
place and have the apreq website link to it. You may want to provide 
source/binary rpms there just as well.

We do that for mod_perl and it works pretty well:
in fact we would be happy to link to them from the modperl site (That exact 
url) as well.

Also check who is the current maintainer of the apache2 modules with RedHat 
and submit your spec to them. That way everybody in the RH camp will have it 
without needing to look for it. But you know that already :)
