An alternate approach would be to leave the dependencies as is but manage the versions as
properties in the top level pom. With this patch we lose traceability of what dependencies
are required where. This alternate approach would make overrides easier for people too as
it would stand as a placeholder for folks to substitute out a property reference with a version.

With this we lose the utility of "mvn dependency:tree"

I'd align the property name with the fully qualified artifact name that way there was a clear
mapping. I think this would accomplish what you were looking to do.
