The Maven convention is to use a domain name that you control, not
(necessarily) the package name.  (See:

In addition, within Apache we like to be able to easily identify the
responsible PMC by looking at the groupId.

I think we've talked about Axis and Axis2 here before.  IMO, they also
belong under org.apache.ws and should eventually be relocated.  When
there are existing releases, changing the groupId can cause some pain,
so they're generally being allowed to stay for now.

For new sub-projects within Apache, there's no reason to continue
inventing new groupIds that don't correspond to top level projects.
For this one, org.apache.ws.sandesha2 seems appropriate.

Carlos, any further thoughts on this?
