Never mind ... <dependencyManagement> in the parent POM is essentially
templates for picking version numbers ... it doesn't behave the same as
<dependencies> at the top level.

Should we think about declaring <dependencies> in the shale-parent POM
instead, for the stuff that is guaranteed to be common (servlet-api,
jsp-api, etc.)?  (It would still have to be legal, for example, for a
particular webapp to declare dependency on Servlet 2.5 even if the parent
says use 2.4.)
