Some form of site element in the POM is a great idea. I don't think it
belongs in the build section though.

I am deploying the site using elements in <distributionManagement/> but
we could probably do with a <siteManagement/> element to encapsulate all
things related to the site.

I honestly thing #basedir could eventually go away entirely, we should
have standard places for everything. What maven produces and uses is
boundless but we certainly can have standard top-level directories for
anything produced. Using #basedir is admittedly a bad idea.

Let's get rid of the use of #basedir, when we then encounter a
short-coming we can adjust for it instead of adding more hacks.
