You might ask them, but I believe that the maven folks have adopted  
the name space conventions of java: the java and javax groupid  
prefixes are reserved for the jcp; com.sun belongs to sun,  
belongs to oracle, org.apache belongs to apache, etc.

As long as people respect the name spaces, then everything is ok. I  
believe that any trespass will be dealt with appropriately.

I understand that this doesn't accommodate Geronimo's spec-jars group  
id, but I think that this just needs some special case handling. You  
have to know where the Geronimo implementation is, because if you  
don't, you will end up with the RI.
