Yeah, we don't usually publish RCs to central, right?

Did you mean publishing them to maven central? My understanding is that publishing to maven central isn't a required step of doing theses. This might be a good opportunity to discuss that. My thought is that it is since Maven central is immutable, and the purposes of the preview releases are to get people to test it early on in preparation for the actual release, it might be better to not publish preview releases to maven central. Users testing with preview releases can just use the temporary repository above.
