You can't really stop it. There is always a workaround. At least you have to create then your
own (company) repo and prevent direct internet access, that no-one is able to activate ibiblio
simply by adding it to the remote repositories. Additionally you must ensure (by check-in
policy ?) that no-one uses jar override. But, tell me, why would I not want to join the project

Honestly, the POM has detailed information what library in which version is used. That's enough.
If you want to ensure inter-project consistency you might start to use entities (as described
on the wiki) or since RC4 you can achieve something similar to a certain point by using (inherited)
properties for the versions.
