That has been one of my concerns with it.

The others are:
- a large portion of Maven users in corporate settings are probably
not in a position to the share (or use it if it is not http traffic) -
though it seems like there are a couple of alternatives for this
- you better clearly separate your shareable repository from your
general repository or your corporate code starts finding it's way out
of the building.
