I don't think that #1 is really a valid reason... IMO that is.  The  
more trees you have to build and the more version numbers you have to  
manage is inherently more complex and thus harder to maintain from a  
build perspective.  The only way it might scale is if we can:

  a) automate the entire process of multi-tree building and  
configuration version updates

  b) reduce the frequency of change in the decoupled components, thus  
reducing the need to build or reversion

(a) is a bit of work to put some more magic (and complexity) into  
Maven2... (b) seems to be negated by your #2 to push out more  
frequent releases... :-\

I'd still like to see the split up happen... but I am still really  
concerned about the granularity.
