Clarifying whether the behavior I observed with the plugin configuration 
is a bug or a feature is the primary purpose of this thread.

For better illustration, I added another example to the JIRA issue that
a) uses explicit plugin versions in both parent and child
b) should be a little closer to real-life

Since people usually assume/expect plugin versions to be mostly 
compatible, I personally feel Maven 2.x is making a better job at saving 
me from XML clutter if I only want to use a different plugin version 
than suggested by the parent.
