[forge-dev] JBoss Stacks: Requirements

Hi Rafael,

This is starting to look really good!

* I think we should add a labels: property to the BOM definitions, just to try to future proof a bit.
* I think we need a groupId on the BOMs, as we probably will need to include some in other groupIds at some point. We could default it org.jboss.boms.
* We should add the org.jboss.spec BOMs :-) These will make a better default for the runtimes
* I think recommendedBOM on the runtime should be defaultBom (notice the case change), as this seems to make more sense to me (same for recommendedArchetype)
* I don't think we need properties as, labels will cover this (a consumer can use a label to set up the right properties)

Also, we need to get the Parser down to one file (i.e. use nested classes) to make it easier for people to add to their project.
