We certainly could and I think we did at one point.  IIRC there were  
problems with maven2 constructing the aggregate jar, and deciding the  
correct version would certainly be an adventure.  My thinking so far  
has been that you might want to track exactly which specs you are  
using, which is a bit difficult with an aggregated jar. e.g, how many  
people really use connectors?
