Aha. given maven's auto-download and dependency-resolving behaviour, this
makes sense. When they're seperate repos a user (lets say a build manager or
sysadmin or whatever the name for the role is) could put in place a
firewall or specially configured proxy server to restrict only to "apache
endorsed and final". But anyone who can do that can also put in place a rule
that blocks on any URL containing "incubat" :)

So I still don't care much either way, as long as its documented :)
