I think this is a really good idea, and I agree with the proposed  
timing.  After some IRC discussion with alan, I think this is the  
only way to have both sensible spec version numbers and avoid the  
current problem that there are a lot of 1.0.1 specs released out of  
the tags/1.1 which I find terminally confusing  (even though I agreed  
with it when it was proposed some time ago).

Basically we should never have to release specs after their 1.0  
version .... when we do it is because we found a bug.  Since we  
expect to find bugs only in isolated specs, not all at once, we will  
rarely be releasing more than one spec at a  time.  In this case  
having a root pom is basically a drag, not a help.
