Actually, both cases appear to be the same because in case #1, unless the
user is not part of collaborative effort, someone else could have added the
repository to the pom.xml for the project.  Apparently, Maven doesn't
require the user to authorize each repository, and just assumes that it must
be OK if someone stuck it in a pom.xml file.

Would that imply anything about the need for a separate repository?
Remember, the motivation for it was, as you stated above, to make sure that
the end user expressed the specific intent of relying upon incubator
artifacts.  That's the goal.  The repository was a mechanism.
