Yes.  And many people do it that way.  However in my case, they are  
not only grouping poms, but also have overall scoping documentation,  
since mostly they're not just "collections of subprojects" but groups  
that you could say have a product definition.  So we document stuff at  
that level, since it's the logical parent of its child components.  So  
in our case, pom projects (with some exceptions) have more semantics  
than merely "a bunch of stuff in modules"
