If having the reactor pom would be even easier then why not do that?

This isn't just about making it possible for reviewers to easily build
the release when voting its about having a source release that you can
actually use to do development on the code. If you don't release the
recator pom then for example how do you set up the source in a IDE -
you'd have to manually go into each artifact any type something like
mvn eclipse:eclipse, and even then that would give isolated eclipse
projects so IDE refactoring wouldn't go across the projects and IDE
changes in one project wouldn't be picked up until after a maven build
was done and the projects refreshed, so really not a very practical
