It's worse than that.  The problem is that anytime one of the
dependencies changes you need to do an online build to get it, and
that online build makes dozens and dozens of requests to various
remote repositories for artifacts that already exist locally.

Among other things, it's an issue with Maven making requests to remote
servers for artifacts that were built locally, which is very wasteful.
Sure, there's the "-o" flag but you can't run "-o" all of the time.
