How often do you expect that to happen?

The repository is central to the build infrastructure and needs to be
very, very stable.  Not only uptime, but as you're anticipating, not
moving around too much.

In practice though, changing the repo url once every few years
provides an excuse to force projects who are lagging behind to update
to the latest corporate parent pom and pick up all the new
configuration you've tried to impose on them. ;) )

In any case you can reduce the need to change the repo url by putting
something in front of it (VIP device, httpd as a proxy, etc.)
