I'm afraid tycho-pomgenerator-plugin wasn't designed for this purpose.
The idea was to give you a quickstart/template for migrating an existing project to tycho.
So it's a one-time generation and then you start customizing your pom.xml files.

Your scenario is valid but we don't have tooling for it AFAIK.
I think the reason is that ultimately there is an information gap for generating pom.xml files solely from MANIFEST.MF/other PDE files.
E.g. info about the p2 repos you want to compile against are not available for the pom generator.
