Because, if you configure the assemblyId from the pom, then you can  
not override it on the command-line.

They are not the same :-P

The real value used is assemblyId, but as mentioned above, if you  
configure this in the pom, then you can not use `mvn - 
DassemblyId=tomcat` to change the assembly on the command-line.

Properties set on the command-line do not take precedence over pom  
configuration (as one might have expected if you use Ant, which will  
prefer -D properties to defined properties in build.xml).

Anyways, defaultAssemblyId is to be put into pom's... assemblyId is  
to be used on the command-line.
