There is a potentially significant trademark problem (hence moving
this to trademarks@):

"The following uses of ASF trademarks are probably infringing:....
Software service offerings that are for anything other than official
ASF-distributed software."

and

"You may not use ASF trademarks such as "Apache" or "ApacheFoo" or
"Foo" in your own domain names if that use would be likely to confuse
a relevant consumer about the source of software or services provided
through your website"
