I think that is the intent. It is a one off thing that is applicable to the build at hand
and isn't something you will want to try and reproduce at a later date (like building from
a tag).

I can see where you're coming from, and of course I don't plan on
having where we deploy to change very often, but I don't see any big
reason to prevent an override.

But anyway, that is neither here nor there for me.  The big problem
issue for me right now is why should I be forced to do everything
through a parent pom instead of in a settings.xml file?  I don't
understand why certain settings should have to be in a pom that has to
be deployed.
