I am a bit hesitant to putting it in the pom file, as it would require
the owners to release a new version of the plugin in case they need to
change tiers. This could be an issue if the tiers are dependent on how
much testing they undergo by others than the owner. But let us get a
firm handle on how tiers are defined first.
