I set the plugin with "<_dsannotations>*</_dsannotations>" and set
extensions in the parent POM and so no child pom that is using the
defaults does need to contain the maven-bundle-plugin section at all.

Thank you again for your explanations.

I (!) see no real pro and no real cons.
So IMHO it is just a personal decision if someone want to use bnd.bnd
files or not and perhaps the IDE that is used to configure stuff and
work with.
