Originally it was a matter of the user can't avoid notice that the project
is incubating. So anywhere, he/she can enter it as a dependency it needed
to be present. Since many uses Maven, that meant it had to be part of
group, artifact, version or classifier. If the project only releases a
source tarball, then it needs to go onto that, and so on.
