I'm actually working on a fix to maven for this at the moment. It would 
allow you to put <version>MAVEN_PARENT_VERSION</version> in the pom 
instead of an actual version number. Don't get your hopes up though. 
I've been working on this for the last few weeks in the precious little 
available time I have right now. The thing that makes it difficult is 
that when your pom gets installed or deployed it has to have a real 
version number in it.
