so far so good.

i really don't understand why this is so difficult to understand.
perhaps it's because you're coming from the jakarta subproject

everything the podling does is most especially the concern of the
incubator.  until the podling graduates, it is *not* an independent
part of the asf or even of another tlp.  the incubator has the
responsibility of getting the podling to the point at which is
can be such -- but until that happens, it is in a grey area.
and until it's an approved asf entity, it can't release anything
with the asf stamp of 'this is 100% apache software' on it.
releases yes, afaic, of course -- but 'this is asf software' releases,

if the podling graduates, then i see only goodness in relabeling
and re-releasing anything that was distributed while it was a podling
(as long as there weren't any procedural issues about it at the
time of the initial release).
