I do not think we should change the maven coordinates if the package name does not change.
Sebb, can you clarify?

BCEL used to be a Jakarta Projects of its own rather than a Commons
component, hence the historically different coordinates.

If BCEL6 can be used as a drop in replacement, then not changing the
coordinates might be a good idea (but begs the question of why it has a
new major version).  Gump says current BCEL trunk works for Xalan and
Ant - at least to the extent their builds are using it.
