AFAIK, this is a topic that Maven is considering to attend to in Wagon.

In my personal opinion, Wagon better than the Maven1 system, but still it is a 
bit weak.
One should centrally (either centrally on a computer or centrally on a LAN) 
establish the resource hosts, their configurations and their respective trust 
management, and not allow for applications to override at their own leisure.

Furthermore, I think that once the central trust management is in place, why 
not support artifact use in non-aware applications, such as URLs in 
URLClassLoader, schema URLs, DTDs, and even complete WARs??

Well, that is the theory and one can hope that Maven/Wagon will address this 
in the long run, and meanwhile I use my own solution that provides all of the 
above, even for Cocoon runtime.
