hard question :-)  I guess I'd go with all the plugins and no  
dependencies.  However I think that including all the plugins that  
are used in all subprojects (and, perhaps, we're sure will be used in  
any new subprojects) would be a good rule.

BTW shouldn't we have stuff like team info in the project pom?
