A good practice is to just wipe out the Maven local repo on a regular basis
(I do it something like once a week on my machine and it's configured to do
that in CI once a day)

This use case can happen, but one should never consider local repository as
something to manage (you should exclude it.from the backup btw). The *local
repo is a _cache_ really*.

You keep talking about a "mrm functionality" in M2E which actually does
*not* exist. If you think I'm wrong, just ask M2e developers about that.
M2E is not a mrm at all.
