That seems feasible. However, we use the pom in the root directory to
also trigger a scan of the .NET code for compliance with our license
header requirement. If we have a replacement for that in msbuild, we
could move the pom.

That is less likely. The build dependencies are all encoded in the
POMs, and the maintenance of an additional verbatim description in a
text file is unlikely to succeed. Also, build systems are generally
doing an OK job at identifying which parts of a project need to be
rebuilt after changes.
