I think we might be very careful with doing that if even allowed, e.g. it should be made very
clear this will not be an official, ASF endorsed released 
artifact, draft or not.
But by simply putting the jar in the official maven repository, with all the required license
and notice files etc. already in place might easily give the 
impression it *is* an ASF endorsed artifact.

I wonder though why the api is needed to be "released" already at the moment.
AFAIK, its mainly used/needed for the pluto JSR-286 branch, and for that one can easily check
it out and build the whole branch, there's no need to have the api 
jar available in a remote repository for that, and I would suggest not to bother with it right
