Usual disclaimers: this is a personal opinion and does not necessarily 
reflect the opinion of my employer (Sun ;-)

Another option is to start a JSR now, as the Apache implementation 
matures, in order to get the standardization process started and involve 
interested parties.
Jason you don't need to wait for Sun in order to start a JSR on that 
topic: Maven defined this area and one use case for such a repository, 
ie dependency management for building a project.
The JCP is open and Apache could propose a JSR based on what you have today.
