+1 Apache hosts various different kinds of binaries as a convenience
for users. The main requirements for such binaries are that they're
properly documented (licensing metadata, etc.) and signed, only
contain components that meet the Apache licensing policies and come
from a trusted member of the community (as there's no easy way to
verify the contents of a binary).

So far the only reason I've seen that could preclude cTAKES from
making such binaries available on is the licensing
status of some the contained models. Having resolved LEGAL issues on
those would take care of that concern.
