Well, there is exactly one good reason which is also the reason why
I'm asking ;-)
DistributionManagement is currently defined in redundant places which
shouldn't be so IMHO. The easiest thing would be to eleminate
distributionManagement info from every pom other than the
maven-project pom. But this would only work if master-pom and
build-tools would be derived from maven-project pom.
