There is a bunch of shared config... like maven-one-plugin, ci, jira,  
deployment (ssh), plugin repositories, distro mgmgnt.  About 80 lines  
from the current pom.xml for specs is going to be the same across all  
specs modules.  Which minus spaces is about 1/3 of the pom.xml.  Its  
about 1/2 of the pom when the bulk dependencyManagement is removed  
(since it won't be needed to resolve all specs in every module).

I thought the point was to allow the life-cycle and version of specs  
to be independent from each other.

Because it is easier to manage shared configuration in this manner.
