We have two different issues here.  Hopefully we can all agree that

1.  Only official, signed releases should go into *either* /dist or ibiblio
2.  The mirrored /dist directory is not an archive and should only 
contain the most current released versions of apache software

Putting RCs into /dist means effectively treating them as releases.  I 
am personally OK with different apache projects using different naming 
conventions and release classification schemes, but would recommend 
against using the term RC for official releases.  "Test builds, 
snapshots, etc" should not be pushed to the mirrors or ibiblio.
