IIUIC, there are 3 issues on the table;

 1. Reduction of entries in any given directory at the resource host.

 2. Pattern to ensure conflicts will not occur over time, when groups are 
created outside the control of the Maven/Repository team itself.

 3. Pattern to ensure that if two developers independently artifactize the 
same resource, they will come up with the same group and name. (A bit 
unrealistic, but noble idea  :o)  )

Personally, I think package names would work well enough. If Castor is a 
hopeless example, wouldn't a simple Google;

provide all the answer you are looking for ?
