I'm not insisting on it; in fact, I like your idea much better ;-)

Our current practice of deploying all of our artifacts to our internal
maven repository came about because the infrastructure was already in
place and accessible by everyone who needed access to the artifacts.

Now that you mention it, though, it would make sense to have an
arbitrary deployment plugin. There is precedence for this with other
specialized deployment plugins (cargo, tomcat, probably others).
