We have active links on the TLP for e.g., OODT and for e.g., Tika that point users to our
Incubator releases that are still active Incubator links. I realize that
keeps a copy, but following your logic, why would any TLP maintain its own dist area? It could
just point to the archives?

Yes, that's what it should do for non-current releases.

on the Incubator dist page -- that's not just a requirement for active Incubator projects,
it should be true even when they graduate.

The dist area should be for the current version(s) only.

Once a new release has been out a short while, any superseded releases
should be deleted from dist.
The download page can point to archives.a.o for individual older
releases, or can just contain a generic link to archive.a.o.
