The layout in repository was intentionally fixed. There are good reasons for
I think that support for other protocols than file:// and http://  can be
if there will be more users demanding it.
If you want to use ftp:// you can rise an issue in JIRA.

I personally think that it is easier to set up own web server then ftp
And FTP protocol is much more limited that HTTP/WebDav and etc. So I don't
see a reason
to use it.

I don't think that one project should produce more than one "heavy" artifact
like jar, war ejb etc.
But it's/ will be completely perfect for the project to publish multiple
artifacts like: jar, javadoc, src, pom
Usage patterns for both scenarios were frequently discussed on this list and
are supported
by Maven old.
