I suspect it should follow the more normal convention of "name of what 
it is" followed by the version identifier.  For specs, the name of the 
spec artifact frequently contains a version identifier for the level of 
the spec.  For example the javamail specs have names such as this:


This indicates that this is an implementation of the javamail 1.3.1 
specification, and the Geronimo version level is 1.3.  

So, what's the version level vs. specification level of the above 
artifact?  Is this an implementation of the "1.1MR3" leve of the javaee 
deployment spec?  Then it is missing its version identifier all 
together.  It should be something like


Or is this the MR3 version of the javaee deployment spec version 1.1?  
Then this should be


Or, is the version identifier actually the full 1.1_MR3, in which case 
it should be


In all cases, the version level of the artifact is the last element of 
the artifact name.
