What about the unwanted rubble that the user will inherit by extending 
our root pom ? Some of it is harmless (developers, issueMgmt etc) but 
other elements have a potential impact on a project (build plugins, 
reporting). Most of our users will not understand the full scope of what 
they're inheriting if they extend our root pom, and to be honest i don't 
think we can expect them to.
