Not completely true. Do we take into consideration the case that we depend on snapshots/milestones
uploaded somewhere (let it be our or 
other's staging repos) and make our own milestone early release? I want to say that due to
COCOO-1745 (aka MNG-2743) we could suffer from 
unsatisfied dependencies because repository declaration is not handled correctly.

I'm glad to hear that. Putting profiles.xml file at root dir does not tie our root pom to
it. It's only a configuration file for Maven 
needed only for devs and folks interested in building Cocoon.

I won't insist on this change, we have more important goals but don't tell me in the future
that I hadn't warned you. ;-)
