Not really an issue

JIRA allows a lot of flexibility in the configuration of Versions (I.e.
the version strings are free text) so you could easily have "Apex x.y.z"
and "Malhar x.y.z" as separate versions under a single JIRA key.  It just
needs the community managing the JIRA to be careful about ensuring issues
are tagged with the correct Affects and Fix Versions as necessary

We've used this workflow for years in the Jena project and not had an
issue with it.

Of course the community may prefer to have separate JIRA keys as appears
to be the case here in which case I see no reason not to allow them that
and there are other precedents for that (e.g. Apache Commons)
