Two phenomena here.

1) A typical project structure lets poms land in the individual
targets and in the local repo, instead of the interesting config of
the maven-jar-plugin here. Then, an 'assemble'-type project uses
dependencySets in the assembly plugin to herd them into the
distribution hierarchy.

2) ${project.parent.relativePath} is prone to end with ".pom", so most
people would just define their own property to contain '..' or '../..'
or whatever they needed.
