Yes, we'll probably solve the dependency issues incrementally as we
make more releases.

About the repository immutability rule - I've seen the repository
owners being rather relaxed about this rule on some occasions. For
example some of the Jackrabbit POMs were actually modified to have the
javax.jcr dependency without even updating the associated MD5 sums or
notifying me to update the PGP signature.

I'm not totally happy with that but I understand the fine line between
repository stability and validity they are maintaining. I've been
trying to get a bit more involved with the repository maintenance to
better understand the underlying issues and hopefully help improve
also the Jackrabbit POM metadata. You're welcome to join
repository@apache.org if you're also interested.
