Actually, yes.   Several projects do that.   Releasing tuscany is a pain.   
It's a release of the "buildtools" stuff, a release of the specs, a release 
of sdo, release of the core, etc....    All are separate releases.    Also, 
any projects that has multiple languages usually release each language 

IMO, the stuff Rick is doing to create the "embedded" distribution is a good 
thing (although I think I would have gone the profile route).    Long term, I 
feel having that is good for the project no matter what the releases look 
like in the short term.

Short term: I'm fundamentally against releasing anything based on snapshot 
dependencies whether or not we tag them for reproducibility or not.  (I now 
pretty much -1 releases that have snapshot dependencies since the resulting 
artifacts will be useless in the maven repositories.)   The CXF project has 
said the stuff is not "stable" and thus I really don't like the idea of 
shipping it.    However, I recognize that Geronimo needs a release of the 
core stuff (and I assume Harmony would as well) and as community building 
thing, I'd like to provide them with that.   Thus, I would say releasing the 
embedded stuff for them (that doesn't have the snapshot dependencies) is good 
for the project and for the community.

Anyway, I'm not a yoko committer and thus don't have any binding votes, but 
that's my opinion.
