IMO it's less complicated and less painfull when dropping the 
maven-site-plugin configuration from the project/pom.xml (parent) and 
fully configure it in each subproject's own pom.xml 

Using workarounds (like MSITE-484) will not really make things more 
stable and understandable. The KISS principle will make it also easier 
to understand the plugin configuration.
