letting Maven fail if you do not configure language levels leads to bad
beginner's experience.

Using the level of the invoking JDK however, seems the most natural fit to
me. I am supporting about 200 developers concerning Maven questions and
before we enforced the level in our department pom, this was one of the
more frequent questions (years back).

The disadvantage would be, that environment would play a bigger role.
