Because they wanted to do something else, namely publish a snapshot to a
maven repository, a thing which exists primarily so build tools can do
automated downloads of its contents without bothering the user of said
build tool much about it, hence lacks "appropriate disclaimers".

Furthermore, its becoming common practice around the open source java
land to call things a "snapshot" to wiggle out of doing "proper voting"
or building "verifiable releases".

So they failed at least one and potentially all of the requirements.
