They don't have to be the same, but maven assumes they are.  If you  
deviate from that you have to do things like put a full scmUrl in  
every pom because it can't be "inherited" correctly.  Without an  
valid scmUrl (among other things ) you can't hook an m2 project into  

Not a requirement, but I certainly don't want to be the one updating  
scmUrls in 70 different poms each time we branch or tag :)
