The problem with that is when the project graduates and they remove  
incubator from the groupId, there is a good potential to have two  
versions of the same packages being pulled in.  The "incubator"  
version and the "non-incubator" version.   If they use the same  
groupId before/after graduation, that doesn't happen as the normal  
maven dependency resolution applies.   With different groupIds, if a  
developer updates one pom, but doesn't update another or similar, they  
can easily get both versions pulled in.

Not a HUGE deal, but it is something to be aware of.

Given the choices of:
1) incubator in groupid and going to central
2) not going to central

I'd choose #2 any day.   That said, I'm still in favor of:
3) incubator in version number and going to central
