Just some more considerations on this though. I would need to check
the impact on build performance - I imagine it's pretty quick, but
it's possibly an obnoxious thing to add for every build whether they
care about incubated apache projects or not.

That said, it could be added to the apache parent pom so hopefully all
the ASF projects can use it regardless of Maven version. That seems to
be less your concern though.
