There's a perception that there's no point releasing until Maven is  
going to adopt it (because nothing else can upgrade until the core  
supports it), and there's no point adopting it in Maven until its  
released. It's a deadlock that needs to be fixed, hence my proposal to  
just release it already and use it for the release to break it (and  
rollback if anything catastrophic happens in the RCs).
