If I'm writing (outside the ASF) an application or a library that
depends on a release artifact from an incubating Apache project, then
I would be doing exactly that. If I'm happy with the artifact as a
dependency, then why should I need to make my downstream users
explicitly care about Apache's internal policies regarding incubating

Do we have some stated policy that if an external project depends on
incubating releases, then they need to make their downstream users
explicitly aware of that? IMHO the only requirements we place on
external uses should be those of the ASLv2.
