I couldn't follow your reasoning: How would the child know that its URL 
should be "url/" when
a) it omitted the URL in its POM for the sake of inheritance from parent
b) the URL of parent was resolved to "url/" via inheritance from grandfather

As I understand your proposal, the don't-append-marker would vanish after 
the first inheritance step, re-enabling the default behavior for all 
descendant POMs?
