IMHO, the iDefense approach is highly questionable.  But I won't argue
with you in particular about it.

However, it's highly surprising that the Apache developers call the
iDefense approach "reasonable disclosure".  Is it reasonable to
disclose critical information on new security vulnerabilities to
potential but paying blackhats *on* *the* *same* *day* *the* *vendors*
*are* *notified*?
