The problem with a release injected in maven is that it will be there 
forever. If a release has some problems (IP issues, etc), you can't 
remove it from maven, as some projects might depend on it, and the users 
will immediately carpet bomb the maven ML to get the release back into 
the repo. Sounds like a possible scenario, no ?
