Sounds like a good idea.
A good practice vor every Maven project unless they benefit from sharing a
parent POM (e.g. "examples") is to use an Apache-parent POM. I think all
Mavenized projects do.

The only question is, does the clients/devicemap aim to have W3C compliant
modules or extensions (like /devicemap/java/classifier_w3c_simple/) ?
Reza mentioned before, there could be a bit of confusion, so if both
variants co-exist, what could be a place or name for the "wrapper"?

Thinking beyond other languages, could we call the clients/devicemap
clients/java, too?
That does not prohibit the clients/w3c-ddr or a possible clients/groovy
(which may in fact simply be a wrapper or bridge like we saw for Clojure)
but "everything is devicemap" so why would only the Java client be called
"devicemap" and e.g. a VB, Ruby, Groovy or others use their respective
language names?

I know W3C-DDR deserves a special treatment based on both the W3C license.
And although binaries don't exist other than for Java, the W3C Spec may be
applied by other languages, too, so there it makes sense.

Aside from that it looks fine to me.
