Not sure what you mean by that.
How can there be a CMS site and a separate Maven site?
What URLs will these be using?

I think the CMS works well for sites that need frequent updates of
parts of the site.
For example, the main ASF site.

Conversion to Markdown format can be a non-trivial exercise; although
there are some scripts, their output still needs some tweaking.
And there are some features of HTML which are not directly supported
by Markdown (e.g. numbered lists using alpha).

For Maven sites that are generally only updated with each new release,
the fact that Maven sites cannot be built piecemeal is not an issue,
so is it worth the conversion effort?

AIUI, a Maven generated site can still be published with svnpubsub.
