I like the default-database-plan.xml which tells you what default 
database Geronimo is tested against. Then, others dbs could have their 
own plans with the name name-version-database-plan.xml.

Instead of removing it, it'd be better off just enhancing the izpack 
installer. So, before asking a user for details, it would ask if (s)he 
wants to change anything in the default db configuration.
