Actually, I think that the tycho-pomgenerator-plugin was originally designed for a POM-less build, but this approach was abandoned a while ago.

This means that tycho-pomgenerator-plugin won't give you complete results for the more modern Tycho features like target files. It should be possible to extend the plugin to also cover target files (including the eclipse-target-definition packaging type), and this would make sense, but we would need you to do it. I don't think that the use case is important to any of the committers, so don't expect us to implement it.
