A few quick ones...

Nice. Does this mean staging vs release, or is it keeping alpha/beta  
or QA/test separate from final release?

Has there been any work to write this out to a new format that is  
already resolved to site alongside the original pom artifact?

It seems you've already done the same, but I wrote a tool several  
months ago to help with that if you need it:
I already ran it against central once and had some interesting results.

I commented in the JIRA, but I think this should only live on a branch  
until Mercury is final. It can be a good way to test Mercury, but  
shouldn't get into a release. We have this bad cultural habit of  
getting stuck in alphas otherwise :)

Let me know if you need a hand with this.
