+1.  While I understand the concern with the need for it to be clear to
users (developers using Maven) that they are using an incubator release, and
not an endorsed-by-Apache release, I believe the requirement to have
"incubating" in the version number handles this requirement.  The type of
user that cares about the distinction will see the incubating in the jar
file name, and/or at least look at the site of the dependencies being used.
Conversely, if a user never looks at the dependencies being used because
they just let Maven do magic, then they don't even know the code is from
Apache, so there can't be any implied endorsement by the ASF.
