There is one big reason I like to have my svn path to maven version
relationship stable.

Many developer tools and IDE's require manual intervention if the maven
versions of the products they are sitting on top of change.
Users have to re-import or initialize their IDE's (especially eclipse with
m2e or maven:eclipse).
Why should the act of cutting a branch from trunk affect trunk devs?
Why should the act of cutting a tag or branch from a branch affect devs
working on that branch?
In neither case did the trunk or branch change in any way.  Therefore IMO
the pom should not change either.
