What would be the sequenceNumber part? This kind of execution config is 
surely an edge case but I would prefer the execution id to not be too 
complex/cryptic (someday I might want to type it into the POM...).

AFAIK, execution ids were meant to assist in merging inherited 
configuration. As this happens on a per plugin basis, we don't have need 
for ids which are unique to the entire POM, do we?

Besides, I start wondering how this relates to MNG-3203. Assuming for a 
a) there is one execution per plugin goal and
b) the implicit execution ids where equal to the executed plugin goal
it seems something like

           <!-- parameters for main compilation here -->
           <!-- parameters for test compilation here -->

would naturally extend Paul's original use case.
