I disagree, the problem is not when using a transitive dependencies.
Maven is just a tool to build something, it's not used to launch a
process while downloading the binaries at the same time.  At the end,
people  check what ends up in their distribution (be it a war or a
tar.gz) and at this point,  they know that there is an incubator
artifact.   You could argue the same thing
about non-incubating artifact also: when building a release, I check
what's inside to ensure there is no incompatible or unneeded artifacts
