If you take the 'view from 10000 feet up', this just doesn't clarify
things at all.  I think it would be simpler and clearer to not allow
people to utilize the term Apache until the project is fully integrated
into Apache.  Starting to use the term 'Apache' also makes it more
difficult for people to back out, which shouldn't actually be a "bad"
thing, nor difficult for them or us.
