Um.. that's not true.  Maven has full support for this.  Also it  
doesn't make the release manager's job harder.

Um I think that goes both ways.  Because all specs are currently at  
1.1-SNAPSHOT, you mistakenly created a new spec at 1.1-SNAPSHOT.  As  
specs become more independent, I would expect you would naturally  
choose 1.0-SNAPSHOT for a new spec.  In addition, new specs do not  
come along that often so making a mistake once a year is not a big deal.

In that case, why not move specs into the server tree?
