As far as I correctly understand the concerns about the central Maven
repository, the point is to avoid incubating dependencies to be
downloaded automatically without some explicit user action.

So instead of adding the incubating repository in your POM, you should
instruct your users (or downstream developers) to manually add the
repository to their local Maven settings.

I believe the same applies also to non-Maven projects where for
example the dependencies are kept in a lib directory in svn. In such
cases the user should be instructed to manually download the
incubating dependency and place it in the correct location.
