This discussion succeeded to raise a few interesting points that have been reported to m2e.
Basically, m2e doesn't and will never support every Maven Mojo. There will always be a gap between what people can do with Maven and what they can do with m2e. People developing plugins need to either do it in a top state-of-art way (using BuildContext) or write a m2e connectors. Most Maven plugin developers don't and won't do one nor the other so their plugin won't be supported by m2e and they'll hate Eclipse for that.
The 2 suggested points were:
* An alternative/additional background job running Maven build and reporting Maven issues that are not already reported by Incremental build.
But these discussions would rather take place one the m2e-dev mailing-list.
