I'm not familiar enough with the mechanics of publishing. I was thinking it would be 
1) cut tag (mvn release), 
2) build (sub-)site from tagged version, 
3) publish (check it in, pubsub does some magic?), 
4) never touch it again… 
I thought it would have to work that way because it's the act of tagging that updates the
final version info in the pom. 

Whereas for the live/current site, every time it's published it overlays itself?
