Why don't we just leave this as this:

Those of us who want Maven supported as part of the release need to get our stuff together
by the next release or else it will be dropped.  That means making sure the artifacts are
correct and easily testable/reproducible.  If we can't do that, then I agree, it should be
a downstream effort, at least until we all realize how many people actually use it and then
we revisit it at the next release.
